(#777777 . A)
when MAKHUNK is set to T ... Is this how 1-hunks will print? That's pretty
ugly. What happened (in all lisps) to the ability to recognize a hunk cuz
it printed with a trailing dot, .. eg: (A . B . C .) ... if you had left
that in you could have hunks print as
(A . A .)
(A . A . A .)
and so on ... This would make them visually distinguishable from dotted
pairs. You could even make the lisp reader smart enuf to recognize this
syntax and turn the object into a hunk as I think the syntax is unambigous.
That might be a feature. I'm not that attached to hunks that i would cry
if someone objected but ...
