LIST is a list of objects, or a function of no arguments to return the next
object or nil.
PROMPTER is a function of one arg (an object from LIST),
which returns a string to be used as the prompt for that object.
If the return value is not a string, it is eval'd to get the answer.
So, it may be nil to ignore the object, t to act on the object without
asking the user, or a form to do a more complex prompt.
PROMPTER may instead be a string, in which case the prompt is
\(format PROMPTER OBJECT\).
If is PROMPTER a string, the prompt is \(format PROMPTER OBJECT\). If not
a string, PROMPTER is a function of one arg (an object from LIST), which
returns a string to be used as the prompt for that object. If the return
value is not a string, it is eval'd to get the answer; it may be nil to
ignore the object, t to act on the object without asking the user, or a
form to do a more complex prompt.
ACTOR is a function of one arg (an object from LIST),
which gets called with each object that the user answers `yes' for.
