Is &body REALLY like &rest?

    Another in a long series of clarifications of clarifications is

    In CLtL, page 145, it says
	    ``&body    This is identical in function to &rest...''

    In Guy's clarifications, it says
	    ``145 Extend the syntax of an &body parameter to DEFMACRO to allow
		    &body (body-var [declarations-var [doc-var]])''
    so as to make it easy to call PARSE-BODY.

I agree with KMP's remarks on this subject.  I would also like to point
out that this change is, I believe, not from the list of clarifications
but from the list of suggested changes.
