Note that merely saying "new Atom()" doesn't throw "erroneous
reference to overloaded definition" in the interpreter anymore until
you explicitly call .toString (but .toString() prints "()"... *sigh*)

IMO we should immediately deprecate, and plan to delete at the
earliest feasible opportunity, the overloaded

There was some talk of replacing it with addString(StringBuilder)
which is used elsewhere in the library; sounds good to me!
