    This one's for you.  I can't remember how or whether this discussion
    finally got resolved.

    Is the definition of LCM (12.4) being modified so that it will 
    accept 0 arguments? If so, is the result 1?

I believe everyone agrees that *if* LCM is to accept zero arguments
then it should return 1.  I strongly recommend that all implementors
support this case as an extension to Common Lisp, and intend to
recommend the change when we update Common Lisp.
