For me define-key was a problematic and common case.  Until now I
believed that replacing 'COMMAND in (define-key ... 'COMMAND) with
#'COMMAND is inappropriate because I thought that #'F evaluates to
(symbol-function 'F).

But it turns out that my intuition was wrong and that (eq #'F 'F) => t
for all symbols F.  So #' can be used to mark function names in more
cases than I thought.  Which is good news for the namespace macro.
