In case it is not clear:  FOAM is the compilation target for Aldor, and this 
is used to generate low-level Lisp.   

FOAM is designed to have only operations that are efficient both in Lisp 
and in a machine code-only environment.  (So, for example, there is no way 
to take an address of something.)
