Well, BSG may get the prize for the last change to go in.  I'm not
completely sure whether the SUBST or SUBSTITUTE format is right, but we
can't leave them inconsistent.  Looks to me like SUBST and friends need
to change.

Leave SUBST (historical reasons) and fix SUBSTITUTE &c.  Make my
macros much happier, and makes for a simpler rule:predicate
arg is always FIRST.
