Asshattery or not, this is the standard convention for declaring an
initialized local variable in Java. It would look like this in CL,
providing you set the current readtable's case to :preserve :
(let ((type (make-instance 'Type)))
(declare (type Type type))
Which indeed looks pretty stoopit. But when I hear someone in a Java
context say "type type equals new type", I know exactly what is meant.
