Funny because I just started a thread on help.gnu.emacs because I was not aware that when you assign a list to a variable, you are really only assigning the fist cell (what you call the pointer) and so when you change a cell in one list you change it in the other list too... I was really confused by that behavior in some piece of code and that gave me the opportunity to brush up my "cons" skills... :)
