I second the motion to have a parse function that takes a bunch of keywords...
PARSE &key :stream :eof-error-p :eof-value :recursive :preserve-whitespace
:delimited :float-format :base :suppress :readtable
Easy to implement for existing systems, very clean for new systems, and is
consistent with WRITE. If PARSE is objectionable due to excessive numbers
of keywords, then so is WRITE...
