So that people don't start writing #!r6rs when they want to return the
unspecified value and implementations don't start printing #!r6rs for the
unspecified value, I propose instead that read instead treat #!r6rs
essentially like a comment, so that, e.g., a single call to read from a
file containing

  #!r6rs 17

returns 17.
