OK, but my personal format just took a turn for the weird and there
are some issues I want to work out first.  And if we ever want to get
"complete CL format" we'll need a circular-write SRFI and a
pretty-print SRFI.

One minor question, what case does ~x use for hexstrings?  R5RS
doesn't specify this for number->string.  An interesting extension
some schemes use is to use the case of the x (i.e. distinguish between
~x and ~X).

Also, the spec says it is an error to pass fewer arguments than
needed, but is it ok to pass more arguments?
