    That's not correct.  You can advise a primitive function, but the advice 
    only affect calls to that function made from Lisp, not calls from other

It may be that in a few special cases
we should modify calls within C code to some primitive functions
so that they call the Lisp symbol.
That way, it would work to advise those functions.

To do this for all the primitive functions would be impossible, I
think, and certainly not worth the pain.  But there might be a few
functions for which this would be particularly useful, and it might be
worth doing this for them.
