Backquote idioms

    And consider the useful but not CL-supported ,,@ .

Much to my surprise, I find that
(a)  ,,@  *is* supported by Common Lisp.
(b)  ,,@  is equivalent to  ,@(list ,@

I obtained these results by working through the expansions of
	`(foo `(bar ,,@x))
and     `(foo `(bar ,@(list ,@x)))
using the rules on pages 349-350 of the CLM.
