 Description   

The implementation of Choice is slightly broken, because in certain contexts it is assumed that the first value in the Choice stream will be wrapped in a list. I believe this is a historical artifact; maybe the list wrapper was used to differentiate two types of values, as in the case of distinguishing not-found from nil.

This defect prevents take* from being used generally, since the current implementation of take* for Choice assumes the first value is wrapped in a list, which is not the case for Choice streams during the search.

Patch to follow.

Never wrap first item to Choice in a list. Fixes LOGIC-134.

The attached patch does not work, many tests fail.
