I do notice it's difficult to define new token types, though, because of 
the 'read until next delimiter' behaviour.  In order to get correct 
behaviour in all cases, I need make a wrapper port and use 'read' and 
'values'.  Which is a bit inconvenient.

Proposed behaviour: if a niladic function is put in *#readers*, no 
additional characters will be read past the #.  Thoughts?

(I'll post a patch tomorrow; late today.)
