p. 148 says that (make <complex> angle: a) == (make-polar 0 a) This is presumably equivalent to (make-rectangular 0 0), since the only kind of non-real <complex> is <rectangular-complex>. What use is it? Is it just for symmetry? A default magnitude of 1 would be far more useful. Note that the smoothness argument does not apply, since it is statically manifest that there is no specified magnitude. -s
