ouch! this is the #! problem -- I forgot to make note of this to the
changelog.text file
my apologies!!

try #$ instead of #!

(new seq name 'foo)

Guile uses the #! character for scripts (i think that is why your guile is
so CM cant claim it as a dispatch character.
my solution was to standardize to #$ for the dispatch in both CLTL and
Scheme but
to still support #! in CLTL. The only other option is to get rid of it
or else allow this to be user settable. if you have an opinion please let me

If I display keywords in object printing then it looks different in cltl and
scheme and
Im trying as much as possible to make thigs look the same to avoid
so the #i printing shows the slot names not keywords because these look the
same in cltl and scheme. its also less text on the screen.
this change is cosmetic only -- the #i reader will work the same for either
slot names
or slot initializations (keywords).

only documentation!
