Ease of use of arrays


I agree that lack of read/print capability is one stumbling
block to use of arrays in LISP.  I would suggest that this
is a special case of the more general problem that there
aren't a lot of high-level routines for dealing with arrays;
for example, things of the power of MAPCAR, ASSOC, and so on.
NIL has defined a lot of functions for use on its VECTOR
data type.  Maybe also some functions should be borrowed\n from APL.
