Re: new cleanups

I think we should just make what I think is the only reasonable translation:
"relatively useless" means "is not required by this standard to have any effect"'.

I don't think we need a cleanup issue to do that.

Is the cleanup committee still in business?  I'd like to open a new
issue to clarify what *EVALHOOK* is supposed to do in compiled-only
implementations, having just run into the problem while writing a new
evaluator.  (CLtL just says it's "relatively useless", whatever that
means.)  I'm not sure if this issue falls in the domain of cleanup or
compiler -- I you think I ought to handle it in compiler I'll send
it there.
