[Axiom-developer] ANSI Lisp and Axiom (Boot)

Yeah, Axiom was being rewritten into "common lisp" at the same time
I was (ghost) reviewing the original X3J13 specs. The package stuff
was not solidly defined at that time so I used the code from the
Symbolics Machine. This seemed to conform to the announced spec.

The new ANSI spec breaks Axiom in at least 3 ways, they want strings
as package names, in-package does not create the package and lisp,
system, etc are special.
