Back onto the original discussion: we added a variable *print-structure*
We called ours *print-structure-contents*
Nit: SYMBOLICS-COMMON-LISP:*PRINT-STRUCTURE-CONTENTS*, (or
SCL:*PRINT-STRUCTURE-CONTENTS*) to be exact.
which controlled how structures were printed by the default structure
printer, in the same way that *print-array* controls array output. I'm
reluctant to propose additions to the language, but if one was wanted,
this seems like a logical choice.
Ditto. I set it to NIL in my init file for the same reasons other
implementations have provided this extension.
