I believe it would be more confusing if ⎕CR is sometimes computed and sometimes not.
The example below might be easy to detect but what about cases like Z←8 ⎕CR xxx ◊ Z or
some ⎕CR returned by a function?

I love ]BOXING and I'm using it all the time now. It's particularly useful when you're a beginner like myself.
Would it be possible to prevent the application of the default ]BOXING value when explicitly using ⎕CR? Consider this interaction?
]BOXING 8'foo' 'bar'┌→──────────┐│┌→──┐ ┌→──┐│││foo│ │bar│││└───┘ └───┘│└∊──────────┘8⎕CR 'foo' 'bar'┌→────────────┐↓┌→──────────┐│││┌→──┐ ┌→──┐│││││foo│ │bar│││││└───┘ └───┘│││└∊──────────┘│└─────────────┘
Oops... The last one applies 8⎕CR on output that has already been boxed. That can be a bit confusing.
