| According to MCL Reference, the reader macro #@ converts the
| subsequent list of two integers into a point.

  That's nice, but what does it expand to?  That is, does the reader
  macro function actually return just an integer, or does whatever it
  returns _evaluate_ to an integer?  Is there a @ reader macro, too?

  (If you think you have to talk about bignums and fixnums, you're
  missing an important point about Lisp's integer concept.)

  I agree with everything you say, but I would
  attack to death your right to say it.
