I think I take slight exception at the remark
Of course, Lambda Macros are the right way to experiment with the
functional programming style...
It may be a right way, but surely not the only one. It seems to me
that actually using functions (rather than macros) also leads to a
functional programming style. Lambda macros may be faster in some
implementations for some purposes. However, they do not fulfill all
purposes (as has already been noted: (MAPCAR (FPOSITION ...) ...)).
