(1) It should not be necessary to extend DEFUN in this manner.
(SETF (GET 'FOO 'BAR) #'(LAMBDA ...))
should do exactly what you want. Is there a problem with this?
You might as well say that DEFUN should be flushed in favor of
(SETF (FSYMEVAL 'FOO) #'(LAMBDA ...))
I like the SETF proposal 1(b). It decreases the amount of syntactic
hair in the language and SETF seems to do exactly what is needed.
Since all my friends dislike it, I must be missing something.
