One hint, Quicklisp http://www.quicklisp.org/beta/ makes this much

Hmm, I've not had problems importing iterate into cl-user.  But, the
easiest solution is to work in another package.

    (defpackage #:work (:use #:cl #:iterate))
    (in-package #:work)

Any of the conflicting symbols will be in a package other than CL that
is imported into CL-USER.
