I did think of one other hackish (possibly kludgish) reason to return
arrays rather than lists.  It makes storing/returning collections of
structs (as currently implemented, anyway) to/from rows very low
overhead, at least if there is a way to store LispObjects
transparently.  There isn't a way to do so currently, of course.
