I have no way of knowing what is proved by Common Lisp programming.
I don't have time to study people's Common Lisp programs.

In the Lisp Machine system, importing proved to be unusable.

If it is true that it is usable in some programs, the question is:
what are the circumstances that make them usable in some circumstances
and not in others?  In Emacs code, would they be usable or unusable?

I made a conjecture in another message just now.
