Re: file mode lines

The fact that you'd even consider demanding that it be LISP
format rather than requiring parsing it reflects strongly
on the kind of program you'd consider writing in MacLisp.
If you were going to write an editor in MacLisp, (or if you
were going to make use of this feature in a program in another
language, say TECO), then you'd consider the ability to use READ
to be of much less importance.  It should be easy enough to
provde a $LOAD or some such name which does just what you want.
You could even take the LISPM code, probably.
