I don't think so. It sounds like a marginal use case that's easy to
avoid (this isn't Scheme, so predicates should be named SOMETHING-p,
not SOMETHING?). But if someone wants to make a case why it should be
blocking, I'm all ears.
I also think that if a simple solution exists, we should fix this on
the release branch.
