> '("a" "list" "of" "elements")/sym => (map [coerce _ 'sym] '( "a" "list" "of" "elements"))

That's starting to get outside the look and feel of a Lisp. Usually you look to the start of any form to see what it is. The fact that quoted lists can get a post-processor feels more like Forth.

And the `/sym` somehow now has to automatically do different things for a list or other expression? That feels more like APL than Lisp.
