 Not really. How are we to keep debug informations about a function if
 we do not have hash tables? If this information should be garbage
 collected when the functions disappear, then that information has to
 either be in weak hash tables (not an option right now) or in the data
 structure itself. Similarly, it is being suggested that not only DEFUN
 but also DEFSTRUCT,and I understand also DEFVAR and similar
 definitions give rise to expansions in which debug information is
 created. Once more, yes, DEBUG declarations can help, but the
 information has to be stored somewhere.

 Sorry if I sound stupid, but I did not even know where to look for
 when you said that the doc strings had been updated.
