I'm sorry to have not done so earlier, but I finally looked at the R6RS
specification for 'get-datum', and I don't see anything to suggest that
it should recognize a different notation than 'read' does.  If the user
has enabled reader extensions for 'read', I don't see why 'get-datum'
shouldn't honor those extensions as well.

Maybe what we should have instead is a command-line option that sets
some(?) of the global read options to conform with R6RS.

What do you think?
