[Keith Price <price@usc.edu>: &Rest failure]

Does the following behavior make any sense?  It doesn't make any sense to me.

We ran the following simple test on the original 8.0 world in order to see if
it was something we did.  It behaves the same on a 3650, 3675, 3645.  We have
no XL machines.

Basically, &rest does not seem to work on defun.  (It works on defmacro.)
This is strange to us since we have many other uses of &rest in defuns that
work, but today no new compiles or definitions seem to work.

The following is the screen output from the fresh base 8.0 world:
D,#TD1PsT[Begin using 006 escapes](1 0 (NIL 0) (:SWISS :BOLD :NORMAL) "HL12B")This Lisp world has not been configured for use at the local site.
