(setq ccl::*save-arglist-info* t)

However, what it still doesn't do, is if you type (foo , and foo is not a
function is erase the old arglist.
Basically, if I'm looking for a function name that I'm not sure of and I
just used another function with a similar arglist, I have to type (let and
then erase that just to get a known arglist so I can see if it changes when
I type (foo to see if foo *really* has an arglist, or I'm just seeing the
arglist from before.
