Ah, yes.  Thanks for noticing that.

And just yesterday I was thinking how convenient — and surprising — it was that 
we didn’t have to dump out any obarray objects; oh well.  Unless we’re going to 
arrange for obarrays to be printable and readable in a useful form, they’ll 
need special-casing.  But abbrev variables should be easy enough to recognize 
and process.  I’ll take a look.
