varif will be better if you can use it in what you're doing. It doesn't evaluate its argument, which might make it useless to you.

rntz wanted two separate functions to search macs and defs, so I suggested filtering the sig table based on whether each symbol was a mac or fn; that would only be possible if there was a way to turn the symbol into a value we could take the type of.

But do you need to evaluate the argument to varif in your implementation? If so, then it's no good to you.
