I didn't realize that that is the canonical name. Graham's and
Norvig's books are my main sources for usual CL practice, and Graham's
_On Lisp_ defines something extremely similar (usable in the same
roles, differing in the SYMBOL-NAMEs of the GENSYMs which are created)
Results of Google search on both don't seem to be conclusive, but are
consistent with the idea that WITH-UNIQUE-NAMES is common enough to be
called the canonical name. So maybe it'd be good to switch.
