Re: (Spurious argumentation)

Objects that are the same should be represented the same. In this recently
presented example:
`(DEFUN ,name ,(nreverse arglist)

NREVERSE called in the backquote is the same nreverse that will be
called by the program, so they should be printed the same. No one
suggested that we map the control characters into the UPPER CASE
characters so that I can write this code

``(DEFUN ,name ,(nreverse arglist)
   ,@ ,(^N^R^E^V^E^R^S^E body))
