Phew! Got away this time.

Good spotting! I don't see why not. In fact it probably allows us to remove my
ad-hoc 'nil => nil at the end of `byte-optimize-form`.

At least (quote 1 2 3) gives a warning -- I'd say it should be a hard error but
the compiler seems to be soft on law and order, damn hippies -- but (quote)
doesn't even reach `byte-optimize-quote`; it's converted to nil in
`byte-optimize-form-code-walker` without as much as a squeak.
