Clearly we should start making things use the value of PRIN1.
This would add Maclisp compatibility and it is a useful feature anyway.
We should have a hook by which users can supply a function that decides how
certain things get printed. It should NOT be the way it is in Maclisp,
namely the value of PRIN1 which is only checked by certain routines, not
by all forms of printing. I will put it in soon if no one else does.
