This avoids the incompatibility.  It makes parsing slightly more
complex, but the extra code and state needed is small.

To clarify: Parsing is slightly more complex if an implementation
wishes to support *both* SRFI-108 and R6RS brackets-as-parens
(or Kawa's brackets-as-vector-constructor).  At least if not
requiring a separator between a symbol and a starting bracket.
