Good point, although as a general rule I'd favor simplifying the
non-scheme stuff at the possible expense of scheme stuff.
Besides, if somebody's setting a list, they already have to know
to remove the #' from the #'(1.0 -2.3) when putting it into

Anyway, we'll discuss this later -- my main point was to encourage
Mark to learn those languages.  :)
