`:before' and `:after' specify execution order (i.e., when this
form is called). If neither of these symbols are present, the
default priority is used (before `:after' and after `:before');
this default priority is represented in CLOS as `:primary'.
I didn't specify :primary, because as I understand it is implicit if not
mentionned, so IIUC I have to specify it now ?
PS: Thanks to Cc me for thread related to helm so that I can fix issues.
(Now should do as I have replied here)
