FWIW, on cmucl, *readtable* is a copy of the standard readtable.  The
standard readtable isn't writable unless you go out of your way to
access the magic standard readtable.

So, it's perfectly valid to modify *readtable*.

Or are you suggesting that *readtable* should be eq to the
magic standard readtable?

The same holds for *print-pprint-dispatch*---it's a copy of the
standard dispatch table, not eq to it.
