I wholeheartedly second this notion.  Let's not let the best become
the enemy of the good.  Too much analysis becomes paralysis.  Code
first and ask questions later.  The whole point of Lisp is that
playing with it is (or should be) relatively cheap, so even if you
have to throw a lot away later, you're still ahead of the game.
