CLtL p. 351 indicates that more # read macros could be added to the
standard language, but doesn't really address the issue of whether
implementations can provide their own # read macros. It does list a
set that are explicitly reserved for users, though.
I know of at least one implementation (Lucid) that has added a #P
syntax for pathnames -- see the requirement on p. 370 that pathnames
PRINT in such a way that they can be READ in again.
