Lisp2 is insane and verbose.  There's nothing more natural than having
functions as first-class values and as simple a rule as saying "car of
an evaluated list is a function".  No obfuscation nor confusion
whatsoever.

You know, it'd be much more worthwhile for the Lisp community to at
least think about having more up-to-date paradigms -- like function
definition by pattern-matching and function/operator overloading (that
would be much better than 1 or 2 namespaces) -- rather than engage in
these useless pissing-contests.  The Common Lisp standard is from
when, again?

At least Scheme has come up with a fresh new R6RS and has had the SRFI
process for quite some years now...
