Standard-objects in quoted constants

    Circular structures are fully supported in the list 
							I am describing.  I
    do think this should be the standard, but a number of Lisps, including
    Symbolics, and I believe TI, would have to be changed, possibly
    significantly.  I suspect all would agree it's the right thing, but I
    don't know about willingness to comply.
    The mystery lisp does not currently coalesce non-EQ constants.

Correction:  I mean to say non-EQL constants.  CL doesn't make any
guarentees anywhere else about preserving EQness; just EQLness.
