[Openmcl-devel] Error on macro character after sharpsign colon

Like Ron I don't want to drag this out longer than needed, but I
worked out something over the weekend (while skiing on a dry slope -
strange what you think about when).
I think an underlying principle should be that if I have some
character sequence x which is read as a symbol and which does not
begin with a package prefix, then it ought to be the case that I can
always simply add a package prefix to that sequence and it should
still read as a symbol but now in the specified package. Similarly if
I have a sequence which *does* begin with a package prefix, it should
be OK to simply remove that prefix and it will now read in the
dynamically current package.
