Always use the most specific operator.  Using READ-FROM-STRING where
an INTERN will do is very confusing to the reader, as READ-FROM-STRING
can do anything whereas INTERN does something very specific.  Same
goes for WHILE vs. IF if there is no else clause, DOTIMES vs LOOP if a
counter starting at 0 is required etc.
