Standard-objects in quoted constants

Circular structures are fully supported in the list
I am describing. I
do think this should be the standard, but a number of Lisps, including
Symbolics, and I believe TI, would have to be changed, possibly
significantly. I suspect all would agree it's the right thing, but I
don't know about willingness to comply.
The mystery lisp does not currently coalesce non-EQ constants.
Correction: I mean to say non-EQL constants. CL doesn't make any
guarentees anywhere else about preserving EQness; just EQLness.
