Function: declare_translated (<f_1>, <f_2>, ...) When translating a file of Maxima code to Lisp, it is important for the translator to know which functions it sees in the file are to be called as translated or compiled functions, and which ones are just Maxima functions or undefined. Putting this declaration at the top of the file, lets it know that although a symbol does which does not yet have a Lisp function value, will have one at call time.
(MFUNCTION-CALL fn arg1 arg2 ...) is generated when the translator does not know
fn is going to be a Lisp function.
