| Delete returns a list with the object deletet.  It doesn't change the
| argument list.

  please, don't post half-correct answers.  it is REMOVE that does not
  change the argument value¹, while DELETE must be expected to do so.

¹ REMOVE and DELETE work on sequences.  e.g., (delete #\e "makeunbound")
