In the absence of any responses, I've committed this change:

        * read.c (scm_read_opts): New opts `elisp-vectors' and
        (s_vector): New.
        (scm_lreadr): Use scm_lreadparen1 instead of scm_lreadparen.  Make
        handling of elisp vector syntax dependent on SCM_ENABLE_ELISP and
        `elisp-vectors' option instead of SCM_ELISP_READ_EXTENSIONS.
        Allow "\(" and "\)" in strings when SCM_ENABLE_ELISP defined and
        `escaped-parens' option set.
        (scm_read_token): If elisp vector syntax active, disallow [ and ]
        in tokens.
        (scm_lreadparen): Rewrite as interface to scm_lreadparen1.
        (scm_lreadparen1): New.

        * read.h: Remove conditionally compiled last arg to

Because it is declared with SCM_API, I've taken care, and introduced a
slight extra complexity, to preserve the interface of scm_lreadparen.
Is this really necessary?
