print question

    Although the MacLisp printer took care to insert "newline"'s ocasionally,
    I finally came to believe that PRINT was the wrong place to handle this.

I would think that it does need to be handled higher up than character I/O.  I
would expect newlines to replace spaces between tokens, but not spaces embedded
within tokens, such as strings; otherwise you can't parse what you print.  Or am
I missing something?
