Re: #:

Yes, that's right!  Its time to put another # macro character up for
approval!  This time it is "#:".  This one does nothing in the
LispMachine reader, but in MacLisp it throws away all characters
untill another ":".  This is so that people can write compatable code
with package prefixes for the LispMachine and MacLisp ("#:SI:FOO" read
as "SI:FOO" on the LispMachine and as "FOO" in MacLisp.)

Suggestions, barfage, etc. are welcome.
