Also, in what package does new Symbol(charset) create a symbol?
Is it a gensym, the current package (which is it?), keyword?
For my purposes, I need a keyword, but conversion is easy;
however, I need to know.
(And yes, I'm too lazy
to learn how to build my own abcl to test it at that time;
thanks for armedly bearing with me.)
