That would be great:  "all" you have to do is figure out how why
parenscript doesn't load via Quicklisp.

If we are going to be sprucing up our readtable, I would think the
way forward would be

1)  provide access to the underlying parts like SBCL (and others)

2)  make our inspector (via the results Readtable.getparts()
implementation) return something a little more meaningful
