		  in any reasonable implementation the &REST argument will
    have been freshly consed.

That's an extremely odd idea.  The entire reason that we have &REST
arguments at all is to avoid the need for consing the list.  Had we
intended for the list to be freshly consed, we would never have
implemented &REST at all; we'd have just let the caller cons up a list
and pass it as a regular argument.
