Re: Documentation strings and function.

I think multiple document strings should be allowed.  Perhaps all should
precede any declarations.  The argument for multiple document strings is
that one can then use a simple parsing program to collect documentation
from code.  One could imagine a convention of the first document string
describing the external interface or purpose of a document, and the
second information about the implementation.  Why isn't the syntax

... lambda-list {documentation}* {declarations}* ...
