Dylan Constants

 From the Dylan reference, there appears to be now way of defining a read
only constant ala the Common Lisp DEFCONSTANT macro. This appears to be an
omission since that *constantness* of a variable is helpful to both
programmers and compilers.

Given a choice, I'd vote for an extension to the syntax of the DEFINE form
rather and the addition of another DEF macro.

Any thoughts?
