meta on empty collections is lost:


user=> (meta '^:foo [])
nil   ;; expected {:foo true} as in:
user=> (meta '^:foo [1])
{:foo true}


This bug propagates to ^:const vars:

user=> (def ^:const foo ^:foo [])
#'user/foo
user=> (meta foo)
nil
user=> (meta @#'foo)
{:foo true}


*Cause:* As in CLJ-1093, empty collections are replaced with an EmptyExpr that loses meta

*Proposed:* Don't replace with EmptyExpr if meta is present.

*Patch:* 0001-Support-retrieval-of-metadata-from-quoted-empty-lite.patch

*Screened by:*
