Compiling CASE

    To Don Morrison:  What is the meaning of declaring a MACRO NOTINLINE?
    CLtL doesn't imply that this is even possible.
    (Which is not to say that CLtL implies that it ISN'T possible - I'm
    being very careful with my wording here.)

You and barmar are right; my brain was turned off.  Notinline has nothing to do with
it.  Sorry about that.

	    I wonder, however, if all implementations do the right thing if you declare a macro
	    which is treated specially as notinline?
	I don't think it should be necessary to declare/proclaim a macro
	notinline.  For the macro to work at all, the defmacro must be seen by
	the compiler before it tries to compile the use of the macro.  I would
	hope that the macro would be smart enough to notice that the user has
	overridden the default definition.
