>(defpackage "foo" (:use "CL"))

Error: "CL" is not of type (LISP:OR LISP:SYMBOL LISP:STRING ...).
Fast links are on: do (si::use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Error signalled by LISP:USE-PACKAGE.
Broken at LISP:USE-PACKAGE.  Type :H for Help.

1. the form _is_ valid ANSI CL.

2. the error message is confusing: "CL" is a string!

3. why do I end up in the "foo" package?  defpackage != in-package !

4. the message has a spelling error: "signalled" should be "signaled".

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
