Re: The reader what else.

	In the next world load there will be some reasonable functions for
do SETSYNTAX like things. See LMDOC;SETSYN DOC for details.

	It is no longer possible to define any arbitrary symbol to be a
reader macro, only single characters please!

	Backquote has been improved to produce LIST and LIST* instead of
always producing cons.  Also you will find that `(A B ,@NIL) does not
expand into (APPEND A B NIL) but rather into '(A B) on the theory that
all that backquote is contracted to do is to produce something that
LOOKS like this. If you wish to copy a list then you should do it explicitly.
