I don't have the mail message you referred to ("I suggest that the text
Amemdment I from my 14 February mail be used verbatim as the proposal.").
However, I like the way you dealt with NCONC in version 5, I don't
see any need for a separate proposal.
Generally this looks okay. I thought you were going to remove this:
(NSUBSTITUTE new-object old-object sequence ...)
(NSUBSTITUTE-IF new-object test sequence ...)
when sequence is a list, is permitted to SETF any part, CAR or
CDR, of the top-level list structure in that sequence.
when sequence is an array is permitted to SETF the contents of
any cell in that array which must be replaced by NEW-OBJECT.
since in fact there is no need to give NSUBSTITUTE the freedom
to modify anything more than what it is required to modify. I
still think it should be removed, just as NSUBST was removed.
