Well, that ended up being 3 or 4 days' work, but all the features are
there and documented.

I'm going to do it! I will! :)

Mark, I realized that we can have (hashv '()) == (hashv #f). In a hashv
table the hashv selects the bucket, but within the bucket elements are
compared with eqv? -- and (eqv? '() #f) => #f. So I don't see any
problems there.

This is next!

I hope to get this all in before the next release. We'll see!
