   From: MURRAY%cs.umass.edu@RELAY.CS.NET
   I would like to suggest the addition of new constant, *eof-value*, that
   is the default value for EOF-VALUE in all the read functions.  

This is not *quite* an upward compatible change.  An existing
application using READ could reasonably depend on NIL being synonymous
to a real EOF.  Although the proposed change is otherwise cogent, I
would opt against it since the benefit is only minor convenience and
not increased functionality.
