[Openmcl-devel] foo:bar:quux

The following 

  (read-from-string "ccl:foo:bar")

results in

  Reader error: No external symbol named "BAR:QUUX" in package #<Package
  "CCL"> .

CLHS 2.3.5 says the behaviour for the above token is undefined, but if
you believe in the mantra that the stricter the better, 

  (defpackage :foo)

  (read-from-string "foo::bar:quux")

     ==> FOO::BAR\:QUUX

may be considered suboptimal behaviour.
