    #123r10 should read as 173 (octal) not an error.
    (ai:lisp;sharpm fasl)
According to all maclisp documentation, "ibase"s can only
be between 1 and 36., since there are no general ways to 
get digits beyond "Z".  
    Additionally, beware of the following:  due to the ambiguity 
of syntax, the number part of a #nR must be preceeded with a "+" or 
"-" if it has non-decimal digits.  This latter point is documented
in the NEW RECENT, and for maclisp in general.  (because, in general 
"1A" would be taken as a symbol instead of a number.)
