    Re:   package question
    Is IMPORT doing the right thing by giving the symbol a home package
    if it does not have one?

I believe there is nothing in CLTL that suggests this, but at one
point a while back there was a discussion of this, and the consensus
seemed to be that IMPORT should set the home package when it was null.
This was way before the ANSII standardization processes started.  (CMU
Lisp also has this behavior.)
