I'm not sure I fully agree with RMS.  These # frobs are escapes, not the normal
components of code.  Most of the time they aren't used enough to bother me that
with TECO they don't 100% work right.  Lots of other things need minor
adjusting from time to time, like where it indents DEFUN's, . being an object,
etc. etc.  I think the extra flexibility and mnemonic flavor is worth the
occasional extra keystrokes.  And I think LISP-based editors can probably
manage to do these right, anyway.  Certainly, the often used ones should be on
non-alpha characters.  But I don't think there is any need for a hard fast
rule to not use A-Z etc.
