  One can shadow IF; does that count?  [*]

  By the way, what would an `if' with multiple
  name-value pairs offer that `cond' doesn't?

  [*] _Any_ symbol in the COMMON-LISP package
      cannot be redefined; and then it is the standard
      that prohibits it, not the discretion of implementations.


Would you like your metaphors shaken or stirred?
