    Why does y-or-n-p REQUIRE that I supply an argument?  I would think that
    it was completely clear what I want if I just call it with no arguments.
LISP had the wrong built-in ARGS property.  Fixed and patched.
    Why doesn't yes-or-no-p go to the trouble to strip leading and trailing
    spaces from what the user types?
It will now.
