Re: more misc. stuff

about -p vs p:

the rule Guy is using is that if the thing to get a predicate has
a hyphen in its name, and the p applies to the entire thing (eg.
compiled-function, simple-string, string-char) then it gets a -p.
If the thing does not have a hyphen (stream, zero, etc) or has a 
hyphen but the predicate would only apply to the part after the
hyphen (can't think of an example but I know there's one out there
somewhere) then it gets just a p.  This has been corrected in the
as-yet-unfinished followup to the laser edition.
