This is part of the package to move the coherent set of base LISP specs 
to PS.

The reason we did this rather than folding it into 6830bis / 6833bis is 
that we had originally simply cited 8113, and then realized that needed 
to move to PS along with everything else.  It seemed (and is) simpler to 
do it separately rather than to further modify 6830bis / 6933bis.

As for why it updates 6833bis, that is because one of the cahnges in 
moving the set to PS was to improve the split as to which information 
belonged in which document.
