Are macros defined with macrolet allowed as place forms in setf?
I have tried the following in VAXLISP and EXCL with both
reporting that 'mmm' can not be used as a place form (interpreted
(defun abc (n)
(macrolet ((mmm (z) `(gethash ,z *bob*)))
(setf (mmm n) 5)))
I believe that VAXLISP and EXCL are both in error. Xerox, Lucid, and
Symbolics all do this correctly.
