Mostly a curiosity question. I'm sure it's not much worth worrying about.
Why can't lisp understand that '|KMP;^Q FOO ^Q BAR| means KMP;^Q FOO ^Q BAR
as a file -- it seems to ignore the ^Q and look for a file named '|FOO BAR|
(I am not concerned since the namelist '((DSK KMP) | FOO| | BAR|) seems to
work ok, but for the purposes of my namestring reader in FORTRAN (which I
have just converted from my own filename parser to LISP's namestring
at HIC's request) it would be nice if anyone ever tries to use such a thing
as a filename for him not to get an error or clobber some other file or
