Suggested addition to "Differences from LispReader.java" section of README.md:
read is capable of reading the symbol / with an explicit namespace, e.g. foo//, whereas clojure.lang.LispReader/read throws an exception. Refer to CLJ-873 Closed . Except for this special case, read throws an exception if a symbol contains more than one / character, whereas clojure.lang.LispReader/read allows them, returning a symbol with one or more / characters in its namespace name.
