Re: specializing macros

    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?
