It is case sensitive, but the (eq? #f '()) => #t thing only holds (in
the latest design) in the Elisp world -- in the scheme world #f and
'() are to be distinct objects (this having only been announced about
two days ago).

I must admit I'm sort of disappointed by the amount of division
in the Scheme on Unix community -- between STk, Elk, Guile, and a
thousand others, effort gets very fragmented...
