Re: Documentation strings and function.

It may be that there are aspects of the language that are hard or
impossible to express in Guy's simple notation. Since I think that
simplicity is a virtue, I would advocate retaining the notation and in
those cases where it is insufficient the description can be augmented
with (non-well-hidden) English.

For this case though, if we agree that the sentence midway thru pg 67
is The Truth, then how about

defun name lambda-list {declaration}* [doc-string] {declaration}* {form}*
