Re: fixing our problems with setf

Isn't it the case that lexical functions cannot have a SETF method in
CLtL doesn't say, but the CL-Cleanup committee decided about half a year
ago, in resolving issue GET-SETF-METHOD-ENVIRONMENT, that what you say
is true. See the handout from the June X3J13 meeting.
I believe that in the following code:
(defsetf foo set-foo)
(flet ((foo (x) ...))
(setf (foo 7) 8))
the function SET-FOO will not be called. Instead, SETF should signal an
error complaining about how there isn't a SETF method for the lexical
function FOO. The SETF method for the global function FOO is not used.
Am I just hallucinating about this?
If so, you're hallucinating the same way as the Cleanup committee.
