Two minor comments:

This doesn't have the fix for properly handling newlines in ~A.  It
should pass the test

  (format "~A~A~&" "\n" "") => "\n"

Also ascii-tab is written first "ascii-tab" then "ASCII-TAB", which
doesn't work on Schemes that default to case-sensitive readers.  It
wouldn't be worth supporting such non-standard behavior in general,
but since most people consider it good style not to change the case of
identifiers the reference implementation should probably use a
consistent case.
