If the reason for generating unique pnames is to avoid having the reader
intern symbols that were uninterned before the printer printed them, I
wonder if a better approach would be to have a uninterned symbols marked
in some way by the printer, so that read would know not to intern them.
This could be an extension to the syntax for package names, with a particular
package name meaning that the symbol is not to be interned. Princ could
print the symbol without the "don't intern this" marker.
