Pray tell, what should #\STOP-OUTPUT read in as in MacLisp?
I think it not being able to read in is entirely correct, since
that indeed is the problem; there is no STOP-OUTPUT character
to read in as in MacLisp.
I think some other solution is wanted to the problem, but I
am not sure just what it would be. Maybe nobody else can
think of a better solution either, in which case we should make
such things read in as -1 or something, but I hope somebody has
a better idea. Note that this problem is not limited to #\, but
is found wherever there is a read-syntax feature of one system
you wish to use in a file which is read by more than one system.
