KMP's reasoning about use of #* sounds right; I think we should do
this. As for the use of #"...", I don't think I like it. However,
we might consider the simpler proposal that has been discussed, namely
that #"..." reads a string but ignores all whitespace after returns.
This is less ugly than having those tildes and addresses the basic
problem, without making any of the problems that Moon pointed out.
