        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" 
    for STRING.
Please, JONL, let's have none of that -- I never asked you to change
anything, just add str:compare-words.
