Funny characters

The file server for lisp machines now supports the full character set (formerly
some characters would be lost).  Characters that don't fit in pdp10 ascii are quoted
by preceding them with a rubout; this is somewhat compatible with the XGP.
This means you can use (lambda), (gamma or "yu-shiang whole fish"), (integral),
etc.  If you read this message on the 10 you will see how those characters appear
in files on the 10.
