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?
