another question about near-trivial Common Lisp requirements.

ANSI X3.226 section Printing Lists and Conses clearly states how a
list should be printed.  however, is there room for printed forms that
exploit the readtable?  e.g., '(quote foo) => 'foo, '(function foo) =>
#'foo, '`(foo ,bar) => `(foo ,bar).  if so, how would it be requested?
