Why WHY WHY was STRING-MISMATCHQ changed? It was working so well....
STRING-MISMATCHQ should return a FIXNUM (index of first change)
or it should return NIL (no difference in strings).
. . .
STRING-MISMATCHQ now works ok in version 153 (now on LISP;). Soley, this
problem and the recent string gc probelm are partly to blame on you and your
idea of having a STR/:COMPARE-WORDS -- had it been left to me, there would
have been no desire to fiddle with tenuously-working code. No more "ideas"
Please, JONL, let's have none of that -- I never asked you to change
anything, just add str:compare-words.
