Many languages have these handy little datatypes called symbolic atoms. These allow a programmer to create a name that isn't bound to any particular value, but is unique in value such that any two symbols sharing the same name always evaluate as being equal. Common Lisp has influenced the design of this symbol library, with the addition of property lists attached to symbols, to allow a bit more flexibility.
