I find this point questionable.  Do we really need to break this
functionality?  It would be nicer if we could both keep
`read-hash-extend' and the functionality you want.  What do you think?

(Besides, this commit appears to contain unrelated changes.  Also, I
prefer it when the test case appears in the same commit as the feature
it tests, for easier review.)

You may also want to add "SRFI-62 support" in `NEWS'.
