	    Mr. Fry has begun our bimonthly discussion of EVAL-WHEN (on April 1,
	    no less)....

	I agree with you.  EVAL-WHEN is intended to control when the normal processing
	of its body is done and is not intended to imply that that processing is done
	by the function EVAL.  The choice of name is perhaps poor.

    But DO-WHEN, the obvious alternative, is even worse.  

Moon's English suggests PROCESS-WHEN .
