That error appears in emacs' bytecomp.el, in the function
byte-compile-check-lambda-list. There have been recent changes to that
function, which appear some time before emacs 28. That error message is removed.
So I'm not clear if I have any choice but to migrate to a newer version of
emacs? Or is there some other way around this? Is it possible to just upgrade
the emacs lisp files?
