Yes, LAP depends upon getting a locative to the value cell. As far as I
know, no other program depends on such a locative. The decision to let
GET bet the kludgy entry (instead of inventing another function name)
was partly for ease of transferring from the old scheme, where the value
cell was really hung off the property list as the VALUE property, to the
new scheme with symbol-header-blocks etc.
So how did you get shafted?
