4d-324 signals a reader error but shouldn't?

Reported by: Raymond Toy Owned by: somebody

At the repl, 4d-324 throws a reader error. But the nearest float to 4d-324 is least-positive-double-float so we should probably return that instead of throwing an error.

But values less than 0.5 * least-positive-double-float could be rounded to 0, but I think the reader error is still appropriate. CLHS says exponents that are out of range should signal a reader error.

Fix ticket 93.

  • Round the number to least-positive-foo-float when possible, but still throw an error if it's too small but not zero.
  • Update comments to mention CLHS
