Yeah...  But I think perhaps pointing the users to `ignore' here is the
right thing to do.

By the way, this reminds me: Is there any reason why
(declare (ignore foo)) isn't supported?  We've embraced `declare' for
other things, so I think it makes sense to do that for `ignore', too.
(And perhaps then later mark simple `ignore' as obsolete.)
