The \code{*} (multiplication) operator yields the product of its
arguments. The arguments must either both be numbers, or one argument
! must be a plain integer and the other must be a sequence. In the
! former case, the numbers are converted to a common type and then
! multiplied together. In the latter case, sequence repetition is
performed; a negative repetition factor yields an empty sequence.
