$ probably needs to demangle names by applying 'unpkg on them.

  <User>tl: 'x
  <User>x
  <User>tl: (using <arc>v3-packages)
  t
  <User>tl: (unpkg 'x)
  x
For that matter, while reviewing arc.arc, I noticed that there are quite a few file-related functions already exported from mzscheme into arc-space. I suspect bits of files.arc can be rewritten to use those functions instead.

Personally I think it's better to do something like this:

  ($.mzscheme-function param1 param2)
Then we can simply define $ as:

  (mac $ (x)
    `(seval ',(<arc>unpkg x)))
edit: pushed a version of files.arc on arc-f. To use, just (using <files>v1)

Thanks. I've made my own working version of files.arc when I discovered 'unpkg, but I couldn't push it because I didn't have access to internet :(

Basically I implemented a version of '$ that automatically unpackages symbols except those given in a list.
