In system 29.95 NWS, with microcode 669, on Xerox Machine 1:
 In compiling (selectq var (#,bar ...) ...) the compiler makes the
assumption that bar is a list, this is wrong. In this situation a
better thing to do is for the compiled code to first test bar's type and
then do an eq or memq depending on that type.
 For my application however when I have #,bar I want bar to be
evaluated at read time within the package of the file that is being
compiled. The defs file for that package will have set that variable
to something reasonable.
