    Hrrrmmmm... No offence, but... where did it come from? Some demented
    LISPer? You *do* realize that such suggestion implies quoting scheme,
    right? It's easy to do when the contents of file is a tree, but damn hard
    when it's an array with an arbitrary contents. And such quoting will mean
    that cat is not fast anymore - extra copying is not fun, especially for
    situations when you have to run non-trivial loops [cost of unaligned
    memory access is surprisingly high].
