Ack. I actually started using #/ for SQL.

I think there definitely needs to be some better method of preventing
read-hash-extend collisions. The current method, where you pick one
character and hope no other code uses it, is going to cause problems
at some point. Per-module hash extensions would be the best way,
I think.
