Description (last modified by Mark Evenson)

Zach pointed out <http://lispblog.xach.com/post/126287122718/syntax-for-reading-a-form-in-a-package>

Allegro, GCL, SBCL, and possibly other implementations support a syntax that looks like this:

foo::(bar 'baz 42)

A form like that is read as though you had written (foo::bar 'foo::baz 42). I use this syntax sometimes for Quicklisp operations that rely on ql-dist symbols, like installing all available Quicklisp projects:

It would be nice to add this to the Bear.
