No, I disagree.  Lisp data is as much Lisp as Lisp programs.  There's
no distinction in Lisp between data and code.

A lisp program file is a Lisp data file, we concur.
A lisp data is _not necessarily_ a lisp program file.

I.e. we have:

    lisp program     ==>    lisp data

but _not_:

    lisp program    <===> lisp data

Here is another way to look at it: If this last proposition were true,
we would have no problem, nothing to fix. Yet, we do. You have
even provided a patch. Hence, your proposition conflicts with
reality, i.e. is false.
This was also already said several times.

By you, exclusively, right?  Or by someone else I missed?
