clojure.pprint/code-dispatch breaks on certain types of anonymous functions

Description

breaks because the format string here: https://github.com/clojure/clojure/blob/master/src/clj/clojure/pprint/dispatch.clj#L378 expects a sequence. In the case of (fn* [x] x) it is passed a symbol.

I think the main "issue" here resides within the undocumented functionality of fn*. (fn* [x] x) is a semantically working function, but (fn [x] x) expands into (fn* ([x] x)). Anonymous function literals expand into (fn* [gensyms] (...)), and as such, it also accepts expressions like (fn* [x] x). Should pprint pretty print expressions which has used fn* directly, or should it "just" ignore it?
