Handling of #, (load-time-eval)

   I interpret your reply to mean that you would support some variant of
   the quoted magic token proposal, right? 

Yes, but failing that I would also accept dropping it from the
language entirely if no magic cookie proposal appears sufficiently
clean.  My rational for wanting to make at least a sincere effort to
salvage it is that no one feels *very* strongly either way about
dropping it, but if it can be defined cleanly, it is a useful (if not
essential) tool for some purposes.
