    There is such consistency in this choice of phraseology that I take it to 
    mean that unless there is a clear statement that the argment must be a 
    package datatype, then it is permissible for it to be anything reasonably 
    coerceible to a package.  In this case, (intern ... 'KEYWORD) is the same 
    as  (intern ... "KEYWORD") and (intern ... (find-package "KEYWORD"))

Does everyone agree that this is correct?  If this is the case, then
may *package* be random things also?  Currently Spice Lisp requires
every package argument to be a package.
