Can defgeneric provide defaults for &key args

We went through this issue at enormous length about a year ago, maybe a
little less than a year.  I expect you can find the rationale for the
way generic function argument defaulting is now specified in the mail
archives.  If we had maintained a Design Rationale document as we said
we would, it would be in there too.

I, for one, don't feel eager to repeat that lengthy discussion again.
