* A new file, src/cmp/proclamations.lsp contains type information for all
functions in the ANSI Common Lisp specification. It also contains
information about side effects.

* The files src/cmp/{sysfun,proclamations}.lsp are now part of the compiler,
and shipped *inside* cmp.fas This should help people build standalone
"images" that can be moved around.

* Alignment of C types is now done with clever C code and should be both
more robust and portable -- please report if your compiler complains when
processing this code.

* MAKE-STRING-INPUT-STREAM no longer accepts NIL as a value for the start
bounding index designator.

* New special form, EXT:WITH-BACKEND, allows producing code that depends on
whether the result will be interpreted or compiled.
