nil or #nil?

The problem is not that the things referred to by nil, true and false can't be
viewed as literals. The problem is that #nil, #true, and #false are symbols,
and array defs would have #(nil true false) be equivalent to

Array with: 'nil' asSymbol with: 'true' asSymbol with: 'false' asSymbol

without complicated things in the grammar.
