    I've looked into READ and have found a way to speed it up by a factor of 4.
    The flexiblity of READ lets us read other languages besides LISP,
    simply by changing *readtable*.  This flexibility is the ultimate
    performance limit of the current READ.

This is good investigative reporting.  Thanks, and I hope
Symbolics does something with it.
