I initially defined prog2 and NOT prog1,
because prog2 subsumes prog1 nicely as in (prog2 nil ...).
Back then, I was trying in every way to keep Emacs small.

This change will cause increased inconvenience in the Lisp debugger
for interpreted code.  That is the only effect that the change will
have on users, and it is negative.

I suggest not changing it.  It works fine.  It compiles into good
code.  Changing it could break something.
