The T dialect has a family of special forms called things like CASE, SELECT, etc.
and a related family called XCASE, XSELECT, etc. meaning "exhaustive". I suggest
that Common-Lisp could adopt a similar convention.
(XSELECTQ FOO ..forms..)
would be like
(SELECTQ FOO ..forms.. (OTHERWISE ..error..))
Is this what you're looking for?
