Ah, that was what I was missing. Though it's odd since it seems there was code
in parse_expr.c to handle the "=" case specially.

I tried my hand at this last night and think I did an ok first pass. But I'm
missing one piece of the puzzle to get it to compile.

What do I need to know to be able to construct a List* suitable for passing as
the second arg to make_op() knowing only that I want to create a List* to
represent "=" or "<" or so on?

I also had another question I didn't ask in the other email. In the midst of a
forboth() loop, how would I tell if I'm at the last element of the lists?
Would lnext(l)==NULL do it?
