Which reminds me to remind people, that most of the [list]-abs
abstractions fail horribly if one of the reserved selectors is part of
a list, because many of the abstractions internally serialize the list
and later repack it.  For example a list "list 1 2 bang 3", when
serialized will give: 


but I don't know of a smart way to repack this to get "list 1 2 bang
3" again. Same for "list list" lists.
