	Historically, SIMPLE-VECTOR is a contraction of SIMPLE-GENERAL-VECTOR

    ....this highly-specific and less
    useful thing is taking up the obvious name for a less-specific and more
    flexible and useful thing.  What would one call this more useful thing?

(SIMPLE-ARRAY * 1).  I don't think we need to add even more names for
subtypes of ARRAY to Common Lisp; there are already too many.

I of course would prefer to remove the whole concept of "simple arrays" from
Common Lisp.  But it's certainly not my decision.
