Re: visible hash table nit

I think we should stick with #H unless the Common Lisp cleanup committee
decides to eliminate the word "hash" from the language.  Right now, everyone
calls them "hash tables", not "tables", and "hash" is built into the language
in lots of places, e.g., GETHASH, MAKE-HASH-TABLE, HASH-TABLE (as a type
specifier), :REHASH-SIZE, and so on.  So #H is mnemonic; #T would not be for
most readers.
