Let me just repeat that I consider universally unique gensyms a recipe
for trouble.  Having a compiler _depend_ on creating unreproducible
output is going to be in the "not really fun" category for a _lot_ of
things.  I don't have much of a clue about the other differences.  But
this one _really_ comes at a dear price in its implications.
