Maybe one reason why arrays in Lisp just don't seem as easy to use
as they do in APL is that they don't print out as their components.
Sometimes it would be a pain if arrays printed out as their components,
but sometimes it would be a win. Suppose there were a new array type
for an array that would be like ART-Q but would print out as its components
with a syntax that would read back into an EQUAL (so to speak) array.
