I thought the idea was not to name verbs as numbers.  I don't see any
reason that you'd have to name a verb as a number without being able to
put a _ or something in front of it.  Maybe we should just make it so
verbs can never be named after numbers.  The only place in the LambdaCore
that I can think of, off hand, where there is a verb named as a number is
$code_utils:1 which is used by $code_utils:eval_d but I don't see any
problem with renaming this verb.
