There is a macro called ``time'' in the lisp package of ExCL. When I attempt
to specialize this macro w/ make-specializable it barfs since there is no
funcallable object for ``time''.
My quick workaround was to shadow the function time, but this seems sort of
foolish as make-specializable should be able to handle this situation.
You can't specialize a macro. What would it mean? When would the method lookup happen?
