Hmm, core-evaluation-test.arc seems to hang Anarki, as well as Arc 3.1.

Well, I've tried to run the tests that do work fine with 3.1 and Anarki under Arcueid and find a lot of issues. For starters, I had no idea that Arc treats symbols with |'s specially. Looks like more accidental behavior inherited from MzScheme/Racket. Scheme48 says that '|abc| contains illegal characters. Guile creates a symbol |abc|. I don't see anything in R^6RS that mandates any of this behavior. Heh, looks like I've got a lot of work to do!

Apparently the bars in symbols is a sort of convention when it comes to case sensitivity of symbols in Scheme. It seems that Arc, in its current implementation anyway, is unintentionally inheriting a lot of onions from MzScheme...
