To quote or not to quote, that is the question
It is not possible to define a correct implementation of `quote' which
produces random-access pairs as a library form, so I could not provide a
portable reference implementation if this feature was added. On the
other hand, it seems useful to have such a form. Which do people
prefer: portability of the reference implementation or utility of the
specification? They seem to be at odds in this case.
