(namelist '(foo bar (dsk . kmp))) => ((* |(DSK .|) FOO BAR)
(namelist '((dsk . kmp) foo bar))) => ((DSK /#74000) FOO BAR)
These should be consistent. I wouldn't even mind if they both erred.
I've never liked the feature of doing IMPLODE of EXPLODE on non-atoms
in namelists. It's too easy to have code that does '((dsk foo) 'a 'b)
and have NAMELIST turn this into DSK: FOO; (QUOTE (QUOTE. I'd just as
soon require that filename components be atoms.
