readers & tokenizers

I'm not opposed to making available the tokenizer to users. I think
that's a good idea. But I really dislike the idea of reader macros,
and would much rather make people write their own readers when
imbedding/implementing other languages.
If by customizable reader you mean tokenizer (as a procedure or set of
procedures to invoke on a port, for example), then I don't mind, but I
will very strongly oppose anything which allowes users to define #.
Connection Machine Lisp would have been considerably more difficult
to prototype if not for the availability of the reader-macro facility.
