GET whose first argument is a random data type (e.g. a FEF) returns NIL
rather than complaining. This is not a new bug. It is possible that
it is a Maclisp-compatibility "feature", I don't know. Any objections
to changing it?
(Reading old mail again...) This is indeed a MacLisp compatability
misfeature. Not only did I flush this in NIL's GET, but NIL's GET
will complain if it notices an odd-length PLIST, or if you do (GET () ...)
I forgot to state the results: It found a few lossages where MACSYMA
wanted to do GET on numbers, and on odd-length lists, and similar lossages.
Some of these were bugs, and all have or will be fixed.
