    I've been waiting for that for years.  However, there's always the issue of
    compatibility with files written by older MacLISPs.  What happens if a
    symbol with FLATSIZE > linel is written?  MacLISP currently offers no 
    line continuation character sequence, and either one would be needed, or
    else we'd have to decide that it would be ok to write past linel.
My answer is that we should decide that it's ok to write past linel if we
don't have a choice.
