Re: Bug in CLM?
There is such consistency in this choice of phraseology that I take it to
mean that unless there is a clear statement that the argment must be a
package datatype, then it is permissible for it to be anything reasonably
coerceible to a package. In this case, (intern ... 'KEYWORD) is the same
as (intern ... "KEYWORD") and (intern ... (find-package "KEYWORD"))
Does everyone agree that this is correct? If this is the case, then
may *package* be random things also? Currently Spice Lisp requires
every package argument to be a package.
