    has the pair (#/" . #/") by default.
    This would seem to be wrong if (status macro #/")
    is nil by default.
No, the list held by TTYSCAN-STRINGERS/| is only for read-macro chars - 
the crucial line of the documentation is
   "tty prescan function can know about which (read macro) characters are"
but indeed if  you would like to make """ a non-stringer macro char,
you would have to remove it from TTYSCAN-STRINGERS/|.
