Folks, you're talking past each other. To a Lisp-2er, calling the argument
`list' seems natural. A Lisp-1er wouldn't even dream of it, because that
would uh... shadow the very useful function with the same name.

Just accept that your brains are wired in a slightly different way
instead of trying to find the One Right Way. That is going to send
you around in endless circles. Just check the comp.lang.lisp archives
a couple of decenia back.

Peace :-)
