Here's my problem: This is a slippery slope: today it's hash tables,
tomorrow it will be random-states, next week it will be CLOS objects,
where will it end? Also bear in mind that I hate the #A and #S syntaxes
and disable them for output whenever I can. I just don't like seeing
huge amounts of output shoved in my face. That leaves me predisposed to
oppose proposals like this one.
Random-states have always been required to have a readable printed
representation. We're already most of the way down the slope.
