	[description of inconsistencies of UNUSED/IGNORE'd variables in

A rather lengthy debate/discussion ensued in late July/eary August when I
broached the subject to the Common Lisp mailing list (common-lisp@mcc.com)
of the contradictory behavior of IGNORE declarations in DOTIMES.

I believe a proposal will be made at the next ANSI Common Lisp Committee
(X3J13) meeting which will attempt to address this issue.  In the mean
time, you're probably stuck with the inconsistent behavior.

I believe I still have the messages from that discussion and can forward
them to you if you desire.
