Thanks to all of you for taking the time to respond to my question. I realize
much of what you say for I have been using the facility for quite a while.
My intention was to understand it precisely. Fundamentally, it is a question
of what is the need to quote and what is evaluation. Note that Prolog
doesn't need to quote, neither does the lambda calculus.
