You said "recreate", not me.  Whatever the right thing is, if you can
do it in Lisp, you can automate it through a behavior.  Hopefully more
intuitively than just creating a random `sjt:foo-dwim' function, but
we'll see as we use them.

The person who implements the behavior does.  But this is always a
problem when you abstract independently developed mechanisms.
