My mistake: it was 1994. That's when Guido released Amrit Prem's code
adding "lambda" in 1.0.0 without breathing a word of it on the mailing list
first. So I guess he surprised me again in 1995 by leaving it in <wink>.
So what do *you* want for Christmas, Steven? We have to do *something* to
get you back from that XLISP crap. How about optional colons, or mandatory
parentheses around 2-letter variable names?
