I was looking at how SUBLIS worked...
. . .
Suppose I went nuts trying to figure out why the SUBLIS returned the wrong
answer, and why my property lists were being REMPROPed behind my back.
I suppose this comment has an element of truth in it (e.g., "went nuts ...");
but the "clever" version of SUBLIS dates back to LISP 1.5 days, and at one
time was a "feature" that you could put your own SUBLIS properties.
When the Moonual was written these features didn't get documented, so I
suppose it would be good to use some other property name now.
