        Um, uh, er, uh, well, folks, (PNGET (READLINE) 7) <cr>
        gives (0) ... clearly wrong.
    So what's wrong?  READLINE did return the null symbol, ||, 
    didn't it?  (PNGET '|| 7) indeed should be (0)
Hmm, right, well, (TO-STRING '||) used to do something useful.
I had thought (PNGET '|| 7) used to return (), but that's not true.
I guess the fault is TO-STRING's.
