Welcome! Please see the About page for a little more info on how this works.
The compiler accepts this:
(deftype foo (link: )
(invoke (link: this & xs)))
However calling ((foo.) :bar) will throw an AbstractMethodError. Wouldn't some checking be desirable?

This is a clone of http://dev.clojure.org/jira/browse/CLJ-1024 because the original with its attached patches was forgotten with the reason that "It has to wait and cannot be applied in 1.5" which is 2 major versions ago now, with 1.7 underway.
I would like to reopen it, or continue working on it in this ticket because i just stumbled over this issue the second time and the debugging sessions that follow this are annoying.

Fix Version/s was Release 1.5, but that field should only be set by Clojure screeners.
Yes, i just cloned the original issue. Later i realized that I'm unable to edit any of the fields.
The issue is just concerned with a missing warning/error when trying to compile protocols with "&" in the argument list as they are interpreted as a variable name "&" instead of a varargs placeholder which the user probably expects.
