How is that a flaw? The point is that WRITE and READ are
complementary and they will produce the same symbols
in textual and symbolic representation.

If you want to always print/read consistently, print everything
from a package that doesn't use any other package, even :CL
SLIME/SLY do that.

Anyway, this is getting slightly off topic, I wasn't directly
arguing for CL packages, anyway.
