Argument Lists

    In Interlisp, it is not an error to be given extra arguments (they are
    silently thrown away) or too few (all arguments are implicitly optional
    and default to NIL).  While Xerox Common Lisp will signal an error in
    such cases, we will also provide a setting of the optimize declarations
    that will disable the checking for performance reasons.

The info about Max and Min args must be around at runtime if you do the
checking.  Do you plan to eliminate the arg-count info if the users
turns on this optimization, or will the info still be around?
