Control characters in # macro.

The lisp machine uses #/A for control-A ( is alpha).
Beta and epsilon are used for meta and control-meta.  Characters
haven't been chosen for hyper and super yet.  I understand NIL
and Maclisp support the same syntax.  The Lisp machine doesn't
have the ascii controls so there's no issue there; I don't know
what the NIL position (if any) on this may be.

You can also put numbers between the # and the operator (slash
or other).  This isn't used for anything yet although an obvious
choice would be fonts.
