In my opinion LIST* (or LIST. ?) is a much better name
for that operation than CONS.
Fine by me - I just want the feature, with some standard name.
If LISPM already calls it that, it suits me.
Note that ,@ 's only conflict with other syntax for @ is that
you must remember not to put an @ immediately (without intervening space)
after a comma. This is irrelevant to whether @ is a macro character
or an alphabetic. I.e. comma does a tyipeek looking for an atsign.
I thought of that. It's gritchy, but I guess one could live with
it. Still, there could have been other choices, such as ,- , but I
guess maybe it isn't worth changing at this point?
