	The complaint is that when you get an error during loading a file,
	*PACKAGE* is generally bound by the debugger to something like CL-USER,

	The same thing also happens if the user uses IN-PACKAGE interactively to
	change his default package rather than the :Set Package command or

    This also bit me for many, many months.  Programming only in Common Lisp, I
    used 1in-package0 for package switches in my source files.  I'd love to see the
    debugger 2not0 reset the package.

All you, and probably Barmar too, are arguing for is having 1in-package
0behave like 1pkg-goto0.  I see nothing wrong with that.
