It is most useful and I enjoyed reading it. Almost Buddhist in

I send an answer to the main thread on the reasons why I
overconstrained the problems. Also, I gave a reason why you can blame
Barry Margolin for it :)

Not quite. The compiler (CMUCL 18b) gives a MAKE-1 undefined error.  I
suppose for all the good reasons you give in the remainder of the post.

This time I will use the "acceptance" spirit and rewrite my code (I
have already done that), always remebering that it is simplicity that
is difficult to make. :)
