Hi list,

why is it that 
(== "foobar" "foobar")
 -> T

(== "foobar" (pack "foo" "bar"))
 -> NIL
and even
(== "foobar" (pack "foobar"))
 -> NIL

i assume that (== "foobar" "foobar") is basically artifact of reader 
implementation -- that it returns the same transient symbol for same read 
token, but otherwise two transient symbols with the same name don't have to be 
the same symbol. is that right?
