Right, it's these:

(defvar * nil
  "Most recent value evaluated in IELM.")

But ielm really does define (and use) these variables, and you can
describe-variable them:

* is a variable defined in ‘ielm.el’.
Its value is 3
Local in buffer *ielm*; global value is nil

  Probably introduced at or before Emacs version 1.1.

Most recent value evaluated in IELM.

Which seems nice...

Perhaps there should be a mechanism to tell the autoload scraper to
ignore certain variables that are known not to be prefix-ey?  It would
basically just apply to these ielm variables...

I'll do the renaming and mark the old names as obsolete.  I can't see
them used anywhere else in the tree, but perhaps there are out-of-tree
