I don''t like the auto creation of the function without some kind of confirmation -- it suprises me when I say DF REMCLISP that it didn''t say something like "no such function, do you want a new one?" '
We have a bunch of different styles of "confirmers" around; MouseConfirm is the simplest, with the message in the prompt window. Why don''t you use that one?'
[rule': consistent style is better than multiple optimal styles]'

Mouse confirmation added for the error recovery case in next DEdit.'
