In zwei in Release 5.1, Experimental MIT 1.4, FEP 22, on Lisp Machine Jim Morrison (3600):
com-macroexpand-expression should respect prin1.
Why? It doesn't call PRINT, it calls GRIND-TOP-LEVEL.
Right, and I'd rather it called GPRINT; PRIN1 is the mechanism for
letting me make it do that.
I don't agree. The variable PRIN1 is the mechanism for changing how the
read-eval-print loop prints things.
If you want to redefine the grinder (certainly a reasonable thing to
want to do, the present one is old and crufty), redefine it.
