The expectation of the compiler [to the extent one can say that computer
programs have expectations :) ]
is that you've debugged the program before you compiled it! This
is unreasonable when the uncompiled function is so slow that the buggy
part is not reached for
a long time. However, wrong-number-of-argument errors can sometimes
be detected at compile
time (type-checking etc.) So maybe that should be done by the Maxima
