LISP370 employed a "PROG-SEQ" as a variable-less PROG, so
that contours could be concentrated under one construct, LAMBDA.
The generic- and VAX-specific NIL compiler also does this.
As RMS earlier pointed out, a single named construct should
suffice for all end-user purposes; we have it now in the
slightly haired regular PROG. Also happy to hear first vote\n from HENRY that he uses no named constructs ever.
