    A skeleton is basically a list.  Each element of the list is either a
    string, a piece of lisp code, a sub-skeleton list or something to be
    reinterpreted by skeleton-internal-1, basically anything that lisp
    allows as a list member.  The only reason a bare - would occur in an
    existing skeleton is if someone was using it as a variable name for some
    obscure purpoose.  It is quite unlikely that any existing skeleton has
    any bare -'s, the only use would be as parts of strings or character
    constants using the usual lisp syntax for such.

In that case I see no harm in this change.  Stephan, would you like
to install it?
