It seems (FUNCTION FOO) and (SYMBOL-FUNCTION 'FOO) are different;
former refers to whatever FOO would mean in that context as a function,
whereas latter refers explicitly to the global function cell of FOO.
In the section describing FUNCTION, instead of saying "see SYMBOL-FUNCTION"
it should say "cf SYMBOL-FUNCTION", so the casual reader will immediately
know a difference instead of an equivalence in function is being pointed out.
Anyone else agree?
