#, read macro

One of the items currently before the X3J13 compiler cleanup
subcommittee is tightening up the definition of how the #, (sharp-sign
comma) read macro should work, and where it may legitimately appear in
code to be compiled.  We are considering (among other options) removing
it from Common Lisp entirely.  Since this would clearly be an
incompatible change to the language, we would like to hear from people
who actually use #, to find out how it is being used and whether some
other technique(s) couldn't be used to solve the same problems.
