Suggestion: Now that :TYPE to MAKE-ARRAY is :ELEMENT-TYPE,
shouldn't ARRAY-TYPE be ARRAY-ELEMENT-TYPE?
Or perhaps just
ELEMENT-TYPE, in which case it would work for any sequence? Not
clear that the concept is very useful for generalized sequences
(e.g. ELEMENT-TYPE of a cons would always be T), though it might
find some use in writing new sequence functions.
Probably this is too random, although I wouldn't mind it.
Question 1: was ARRAY-RESET-FILL-POINTER eliminated by the decision
at the last meeting to use SETF exclusively? I.e. is it subsumed
by (SETF (ARRAY-ACTIVE-LENGTH A) L)?
(SETF (FILL-POINTER surely.
