Thank you, this works.  It even brings back memories of Hemlock  
definitions I once made for CMUCL.  The binding doesn't work because  
the OS has grabbed that somewhere (and plain shift-3 does not get  
through at all), but control-meta-3 works.  I need to find something  
less painful to type, clearly.
