Now that comma has been gobbled as a character for
the backquote read macro, why don't we make a comma
that is outside a backquote just mean eval the next
sexpr (ie. a #, on the LISPM).
If you did that, then you couldn't get a read-time evaluation within
a backquoted form. The two ideas (, within ` and comma without it)
are only superficially similar, and the mechanisms should be orthogonal.
