I am sure you know what you're referring to.  But I am shocked this
would be used frequently.  Can you plesae show me why and how?

I'm not going to answer for Po Lu, but I'll only mention something not yet
said about this form, which is that it is so important to the Common Lisp
language that it's not even a macro, it's one of the fundamental "special
forms" of the language (added sometime in 1988, it seems).
