Greetings!  Hi Peter!  Just following up on a few other thoughts you

Could you elaborate on the conflict that leads to the abort here?  I
assume what we should have seen with the just-fixed segfault is a
'(...) not a struct' or some such?  Or is the segfault the intended
behavior when the code is compiled with no safety options?

I think you're referring to my bypassing the pcl type classes in typep
and subtypep.  I was meaning to revisit this to avoid all the hand
subtypes I entered previously to pass Paul's tests.  Anyway, I think I
know how to improve this, but would like to know what you've done

Take care,
