Actually, there is ONE situation I've encountered where I would have liked to use symbols... in my playlist program, I have a list of file extensions which are considered "audio". Here's how it looks in Arc:

  '(flac flv mid mkv mp3 mp4 ogg ogm wav webm wma)
In Nulan, that would have to be written like this:

  {"flac" "flv" "mid" "mkv" "mp3" "mp4" "ogg" "ogm" "wav" "webm" "wma"}
Or perhaps like this:

  "flac flv mid mkv mp3 mp4 ogg ogm wav webm wma".split " "
To work around that, I wrote a short and simple "words" macro:

  $mac words -> @args
    '{,@(args.map -> x "@x")}

  words flac flv mid mkv mp3 mp4 ogg ogm wav webm wma
