OK, I know what I want for the "revision" of ANSI Common Lisp: the specification of a registry of feature symbols, to be handled by a registration authority. this could also be an additional standard. the registry would have to pre-register all known feature symbols and accept collisions but also list how to disambiguate, but no new features should collide. #:Erik -- it's election time in Norway. explains everything, doesn't it?
