I am not advocating changing eval in a future edition.
What I found confusing was that the previous section started with
"When the eval function is called with one argument x, the
following steps are taken:"
and whether that was assumed by the following section.
But somebody here read 18.104.22.168 and concluded that eval with other
than one argument was the function.
I concluded otherwise. I still don't know what the answer is?
