        there is no need to extend the evaluator to deal with a class-object
        in the CAR of the hunk, as the evaluator already dispatches via
        (status usrhunk).  It is the COMPILER which requires that slot to
        have a dummy macro definition ...
    The compiler eh? Oh foobar. JONL can extend that can't he?
    Certainly nobody would object if he did. (Or would they?)
I'm sure it can be extended upwards-compatibly with the user-hunk stuff.
Probably want two messages, one for "macro-expanding" code-being-compiled,
and one for "macro-expanding" code being macro-expanded.
Probably non-user-hunk hunks want to be treated as they are now;  fall
through to the list case.
