Combining CDR-coding with vectors

Instead of using vectors with tags in the name field, it might be
simpler to optimize the representation for the encoding of CDR-linked
lists.

This is to be able to give in to some performance issues:  speed is
not important for PF, but memory size might be.  Currently, CONS cells
are really expensive, requiring 3 pointer slots per cell.

However, since the rest of the implementation relies heavily on type
tags, maybe this isn't going to work well?  It might be better
reserved for a tagless representation..

Something for later.
