Timofei Shatrov <> wrote the following to disable some code:
| #+(or) (let (...) ...)

May I strongly recommend that everyone always use #-(AND) instead of
#+(OR), and conversely use #+(AND) instead of #-(OR)?  Yes, AND is
one character longer to type than OR, but with the AND flavor the sense
of the +/- "goes the right way": plus = on/enable, minus = off/disable.
Much less likely to cause mistakes.

Just a suggestion...


p.s. IIRC, I first heard this recommendation & rationale from Erik Naggum.
