Looking through the PRINT-OBJECT specification, there is no read macro
specified for allowing an object printed out to be read back in.
Since DEFSTRUCT has the #S read macro, it seems as if something similar
should be available for instances of classes of the default metaclass.
#O comes to mind first, but, of course, that is used by octal numbers.
Why not #@? From CLTL, pg. 352, this one looks free.
