I think I would make it so that what is written in the save file is an
expression that, when read _and_ evaluated, would return the recovered
object.  The approach on the object-write side would not be much
different than now, but the restoring part would be trivial, so code
changes would become less problematic.

My patience here lasts as long as necessary, don't worry :-)

So far this fixes quote accumulation completely for me - Great!  I
didn't yet try to use the registry explicitly, so I can't say whether
your fix works correctly.  Anyway - thanks so far!

FWIW, when I read the sources, I got the impression that all conses are
handled as if they were true lists.  Trying to save conses whose cdr is
not consp will probably error, since the current code always seems to
try to iterate over list elements.


Michael.
