I don't know, and I can't tell just by looking.  Personally, I'm
perfectly happy to work around the problem, since I don't usually write MP
code by hand anyway.  I'm more interested in having MP not change too

It does bother me a little to learn that `dotlabel' is a `vardef'.  The
syntax rules for MP say that it's a "<pseudo procedure>"
(_User's Manual_, p. 76), so I thought it was a primitive.
