If the DEFMETHOD spec, in the second paragraph [ If (fboundp function-specifier) is
nil], it says that the lambda-list of the [created] generic function is congruent
with the lambda-list of the method. This is not specific enough, given our rules
on lambda-list congruence.
The issue is:
If the method lambda-list contains some keys, do we create the generic function
lambda-list with these keys present? If we do, then we enforce the fact that every
method for this generic function must accept these keys.
I think that we shouldn't put them in the generic function lambda-list, but either
way, this needs to be specified.
Good point. The generic function lambda-list should have &key with no
parameter specifiers after it in this case. The document should say this
