    Do you want to work on a new variable?  Since adding `-p' to only two
    match functions doesn't make sense.  And adding `-p' to all functions
    makes even less sense.

For the reasons explained in my words quoted above, I've
decided I want the two new functions and NOT the variable.

Last confirming before working: can we implement a new variable at the
C level and implement the two new functions (possibly as macros) at
the Lisp level?  This is an eclectic proposal and takes advantages
from both sides.
