‘get-lexer/1’ can return '*eoi*, so yes, I think.

I don’t think so, since it’s the result returned by ‘read-elisp’, whose
callers shouldn’t see '*eoi*.  So I think ‘get-expression’ should return
the EOF object when it encounters '*eoi*.

Besides, you might want to check if it’s fixed in the elisp branch, who
knows.  :-)
