#734: Numbers egg ignores #e and #i

     Type:  defect      |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  major       |   Milestone:  4.8.0

 `#e` should force the following numeric constant to be interpreted as an
 exact value; `#i` should force the following number to be interpreted as
 an inexact value.  Neither works.

 Note that (in my opinion) `#e` should ''not'' be implemented using
 `exact->inexact`; `#e25.4` should be the same as `254/10` (or 127/5), not
 as `3574732204225331/140737488355328`.  Similarly, `#e1e3000` should be
 the exact integer notated as 1 followed by 3000 zeros.
