RLB and I just found one of the reasons that MACSYMA is smaller
in the new LISP.  The value of GCPROTECT was #2 in the old LISP due
to a typo in the STRUCT file.  I fixed this during one of my random
walks through struct trying to do something useful.  This was causing
a list > 1700 octal objects long to be created and causing things
which should have been pruified not to be!!!  Oh well, the pure stuff helps
a little I'm sure, but this takes into account at least 1k of impure
space and probably more like 2k of pure space!!!  (wow, a powerful typo).
