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.
