Re: User-reserved element in byte code vectors

    I think paying one extra word for each and every closure ever created from
    now on, just because of the remote possibility that someone will want
    something like rcurry and will want it to be really efficient and that
    someone will not prefer some other implementation....

We're talking about currying--what does that have to do with
closures?  There is some similarity between the two, but I don't
think we want to use `curry' to implement closures.
It seems to me that if we add any facility for closures
we might as well make it a primitive that does precisely closures.
