Description: "push" and "add" and "type?" and several other change words need to have an NLAMBDA function behind them so that they can be traced while running interpretively.   Also, it would be an immense help for them to have ARGNAMES properties -- especially new, and CommonLisp trained, users will tend to confuse the order of arguments to "push" (they''re  opposite order in CommonLisp!)
