; (iota integer)             ==>  list
; (iota integer1 integer2)   ==>  list
; (iota* integer1 integer2)  ==>  list
;
;
; IOTA creates a sequence of integers starting at 1 and ending
; at INTEGER (including both). When a second argument is passed
; to IOTA, the sequence returned by it will start at INTEGER1
; and ; end at INTEGER2 (again, including both).
;
; IOTA* differs from IOTA in two ways: it always takes two
; arguments and excludes INTEGER2 from the generated sequence.
;
; Example:   (iota 7)       ==>  (1 2 3 4 5 6 7)
;            (iota 17 21)   ==>  (17 18 19 20 21)
;            (iota* 17 21)  ==>  (17 18 19 20)
;            (iota* 1 1)    ==>  ()
