Hi, I have a mac with a UK keyboard, and I'm using 1.3 but not fetched  
by SVN (the IDE-building instructions did not work for me so I just  
fetched the ftpable one). To type hash on one of these, you say  
option-3. (shift-3 is pound-sign).  Of course, you can't type this if  
the IDE is set up to bind option to meta, and not being able to type  
hash is fairly annoying in CL.  And of course, not having a meta key  
is also pretty irritating.

I think that the answer is probably to work out how to bind shift-3 to  
insert a hash, and I can probably do that.  But it's a very (*very*)  
long time since I used Hemlock, so if anyone else has seen this  
problem and can assist me being lazy, that would be much appreciated.
