Clarification of my earlier note to bug-lisp, since GLS thinks I was
unclear. (Apologies to GLS for having to hear this twice.)

Only thing is that if I snarf some lisp function and put it on something
in my fortran->lisp translator for instance, I don't want to read a
fortran program and alias an atom to something else on the basis of
whether it conflicts with code in the translator environment, i want to 
do aliasing for things that will conflict with system names in a bare lisp
environment! This doesn't happen, but I conceive this as one of the main
uses of the SYSP function -- i.e., by an environment that is hacking
things like compiling, translating, etc., and usually one that doesn't
want its personal environemnt to get mixed up with the real one it is
preparing things for.
