Okay, how about a library function:
(define NaN (lambda()
"return a NaN for use in other functions,
because there is no read/write syntax for NaN."
(/ 0.0 0.0)))
then you can write:
So your code is clear and readable, and yet you
don't have a read/write syntax that makes it unclear
whether read is failing or just reading an error.
