Re your confusion of CAR/CDR on hunks, and GET on hunks:

From: Kent M. Pitman <KMP at MIT-MC>
It was frequently advertised by word of mouth in the lab, that hunks
were car/cdr-able. . . . Maclisp
documentation sucks in its currently released state. It is not fair for
you to claim that the lack of documentation is lack of contract.

(CXR N H) RETURNS THE N'TH ELEMENT OF THE HUNK H.
(CXR 0 H) IS EQUIVALENT TO (CAR H), AND (CXR 1 H)
IS EQUIVALENT TO (CDR H); IN FACT, THE CAR AND CDR
FUNCTIONS MAY BE USED ON HUNKS AS WELL AS ON LISTS.
