Do you think it would be useful to have a function like = for numbers
but like EQ for non-numbers?
Do you think it would be good to make = do this?
If not, what should it be called?
Interlisp calls it EQP, which I think is uninspired.
I think it would be worthwhile to have such a function, but I don't think it
should be called =, since that would be a gratuitous incompatibility with
MACLISP, and not really suggested by the name = anyway. How about EQL, sort of
half-way between EQ and EQUAL?
