Like many Lispers, I don't use the Common Lisp
iteration macro often, and mostly in simple cases. In my case, this
is not because
loop is "less Lispy", but for
its complexity. Also like many, I considered using the
macro by Jonathan Amsterdam.
22 "LOOP for Black Belts" of Peter Seibel's book Practical Common
loop so well, that I feel much
less need for
iterate, at least in most cases, where
extensibility is not required.
