Agreed, we should get rid of use_fast_arrays. These "naked" CL hash tables
and arrays are the source of lots of Maxima bugs. The use_fast_array code
spread all other the place. Expunging it wouldn't be fun or easy.
I doubt that your function unique_elements would run all that much faster
compiled. But the compiler should be able to compile Kill correctly.
