Xach on #lisp tells me that the above was insulting. It was not my
intention to be insulting in any way and Xof told me about the MOD

I apologize for any offense I may have caused by reporting a totally
benign change in the way a type is represented as a possible bug.
I further apologize for the noise I made on this list.
