C-h f or ==> "or is a built-in function.."
(mapcar 'or (t t nil)) ==> "Error: invalid function: or"..

<--an inconsistency there..

perhaps the help-documentation for or/and (etc.) should say:
"is a built-in special-form.."
instead of "function.."

(in the meanwhile, is there a way for the user to tell whether
something is a function or a special form?)
