(CASEQ '(FOO BAR) '((X) 8)) gives a WRNG-TYPE-ARG error for
its first argument. Says it wants a SYMBOL or a FIXNUM.
I thought the definition of CASEQ was that it used MEMQ
to test the cases except that "=" is used in maclisp if the
cases are all fixnums.
There are three ways to look at this
 Extra error checking provided in the interpreter.
 Foolishly introduced incompatibility between the interpreter
 some other way?
what I'm wondering about is number 3.
