RWK says he would rather screw people who are already using LISP in the
default way than screw people who want to use a new feature.
It seems to me that this attitude is preposterous. People who are
waiting anyway can more easily be asked to wait some more than
can people who will be screwed by this change to MACLISP, especially
here where the transition can be made less painful so easily by first
changing the default for TERPRI to T (which I have already done in
the current MACSYMA) and waiting some on the CR change.
