Not really, except
a) it will not catch errors in the symbol plist.
b) it is slightly slower

I will revert my changes, and just make get safe...

But then, why don't we make plist-get safe
and get rid of safe-plist-get, too ?

IIRC, safe-plist-get is new in 22.1, so I don't see any big
problems doing that...
