My notes say...
People wanted PSETQ added with SETQ in the list of things SYMBOL-MACROLET
RWK wants changes to deal with *MACRO-EXPANSION-HOOK* to clarify how it gets
called when PSETQ and SETQ are used. He seemed to want it called with the
SETF expander and a consed-up SETF form. I'd rather it be called with a special
magic expander and the actual SETQ form.
RPG wants to flush SYMBOL-MACROLET altogether and have people just use
WITH-SLOTS. Many people didn't want to give up the flexibility of
A vote on Version 6 "as is" passed 16-2.
A straw poll was taken on the question ``should we ask RPG to draft a proposal
for flushing SYMBOL-MACROLET.'' On a 6-8 vote, we opted not to write such
a proposal. [That doesn't preclude him from doing it anyway, of course.]
