How can one handle circular lists indescriminately in sequence
functions? It seems to me that at minimum the function must record or
mark each cons to avoid a recursive loop. Am I missing an obvious point?
I am curious to know by what technique one can do NTH without scanning the
list (excluding cdr-coded lists)?
