Well, it satisfies pair? since the first cell *is* a pair. The cdr
of the pair just points to another pair...
pair? makes a nice check for recursive procedures as the empty list
is not a pair: (pair? '()) -> #f
This avoids checking for list? and null?
May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
