I don't think it would be wise to replace EQ with EQL on a wholesale basis.
On microcoded machines, this can be made to win just fine and the added
tastefulness is worth it. But Common Lisp has to run on vaxen and such as
well, and there the difference can be a factor of three. In scattered
use, this would not be a problem, but EQ appears in many inner loops.
