Just to get my 2-cents worth in ...
Why not have the keyword :ignore be part of the STANDARD
features list? Then someone would not have the problem of knowing
whether it is or is not in the features list. So when you want to
eat an s-expression just do:
#-:ignore (mumble-frats ...)
On the other hand, I tend to agree with the purists that this
kind of mucking with the standard is to be avoided. So maybe it
would be appropriate if our mailers were taught to ignore letters
about things like this. Another idea is that we start attaching
a GC: <n> field to the letters we send out which can be
used by mail-reading programs to decide whether to "ignore"
this or that piece of mail.
