` and , as initial macro characters

It is interesting to note that the initial macro characters in LISP
are thus  ` ' , ; -- that is, all the "bits and pieces" characters.
Thhe LISP Machine additionally uses : as a package marker.
(I am ignoring |, which is implemented as a macro, because it
spoils the general theory.)
