Hmm, no.  The reason is that having it in `unstable' will be an
encouragement for us all to get 1.8 out the door fast... ;-) More
seriously, your patch might not break existing stuff, but your code
itself has probably not stabilized.

I like this a lot (and have it on my little todo list myself).  Do you
know about the read-table stuff of Common List.  It's quite extensive,
with catcodes (they call it syntax type) and all.  Before we invent
our own customizable parser, Id rather go with an existing standard.
