We are implementing a frame system where each frame is a defstruct. We
use a reader macro to reference case sensitive frame names, permitting
the frame namespace to be disjoint from the symbol namespace. The
reader macro also lets us hook into a completion package that is very
handy for longer names.
I would be interested in hearing what alternatives the cleanup committee
is considering. Being able to dispatch to an arbitrary read function is
hard to beat.
