Re: Making System Functions Specializable

> The function MAKE-SPECIALIZABLE should do it.

Are you using the Xerox version of PCL?  I didn't realize that
MAKE-SPECIALIZABLE was distributed for other CL implementations.  

The problem is that MAKE-SPECIALIZABLE is not documented in the spec.  I was
wondering why the drafters of the specification have not included provisions for
redefining system forms as generic functions.  It seems to me that that will
prove to impose a serious limitation on the usefulness of generic functions.
