I think there's something you don't understand -- those wierd looking
things you're complaining about, e.g., #("xyz" 1 2 p), _are_ strings.

The printed lisp representation looks a bit messier than a normal
string, to be sure, but for most purposes, they behave exactly like any
other string.

If they break something, please say _what_ they break.  Be specific.
