  Yes.  Thank you for the correction and clarification.

  It looked to me like nobody really liked "partition" and the consensus
  was clearly on "split-sequence".  The name "partition" was just handed to
  us as something to accept despite the strong opposition.  However, I have
  not found the discussion behind this comment in "partition.lisp":

;;; * naming the function PARTITION rather than SPLIT.

  I wonder how this change was chosen.  Where can I find the discussion?
