I propose that the syntax bits for " and # be changed so that they
PRIN1/PRINT with /'s in front of them. This will help get files
converted over to compatibility with # and " without any ill effects.
Note: I am *not* suggesting that " or # do anything unusual by default,
merely that they print as if they did to guard against being
re-read later in an environment where # and/or " have funny
syntax since this is happening so often lately.
If anyone knows of any reason why syntax bits 400 and 100 octal should
not be turned on for these characters in the very near future, please
let me know. Thanx.
