    2.  Moon stated that adjusting an array never affect the target array.
	Assuming my point #1 is correct, then the target array is affected
	if a) it is specified in the :DISPLACED-TO option, and b) the
	:INITIAL-ELEMENT option is also specified.

and :DISPLACED-TO may not be used together.  This restriction should
apply to ADJUST-ARRAY also.  The language under ADJUST-ARRAY is misleading
in a number of respects about how :INITIAL-ELEMENT and :DISPLACED-TO are
