Daniel is correct, except that MCL really should be nicer about this.
Note that it will normally print structures readably. If, however, you
set *print-structure* to NIL, it won't. That must have been it's value
in Daniel Suthers' world. I've prepared a patch for inclusion in patch 3
for MCL 2.0 that makes MCL's structure printing ignore *print-structure*
if *print-readably* is true. If you want it before then, ask for
"readable-structure-patch" (note that I probably won't send
you the patch until my vacation is over two weeks from now).
