Isn't it about time we prepare to recycle the non-* names? I suggest
that CATCH,THROW exist but be errors in the about-to-be-released Maclisp
version, and that they be identical to *CATCH,*THROW in the next one.
I reproduce the 2-year-old warning below.
Sunday Sept 17,1978 FM+11H.57M.58S. LISP 1742 -HIC, JONL-
Changes affecting all LISPs:
 *THROW, *CATCH, CATCHALL, CATCH-BARRIER, and UNWIND-PROTECT.
For compatibility with the new format of CATCH and THROW in the
LISP Machine, and in NIL, we are introducing *THROW and *CATCH.
Please use these, and sometime in the future, CATCH and THROW in
PDP10 MACLISP may be changed also. It is recommended that old code be
converted to *CATCH and *THROW.
