For the latter matter, are you aware of named-readtables? They provide a
namespace for readtables like there's a namespace for packages, so
that systems can hack the reader to oblivion without stomping on each
other feet. The code is pretty much portable except for working around
some implementations' idiosyncracies. Should work on ABCL just fine.
