What about having 'elisp-strings' instead escaped-parens?
Escaped-parens seems very, very specific to me but still its only use
is to allow the reading of elisp strings.

In the long run, I think we should have a configurable reader, much
like Common Lisp specifies it.

It is a good thing to do, but i this case, not strictly necessary, I'd
say.  You could also have renamed scm_lreadparen to scm_i_lreadparen
(or made it static, maybe) and thus removed it from the public
interface of libguile.
