issues if the source data contains certain unicode characters. (I think in
range 128-255 - extended latin characters mostly).
This is because the goog string conversion used by pr-str encodes these
characters as \x.. not \u00..
read-string will throw an exception if it encounters these characters.
Should read-string support these character escapes?
by way of work around, I am using:
(require '[clojure.string :as s])
(defn unescape [string]
(fn [m] (str (char (Integer/parseInt (second m) 16))))))
(defn my-read-string [s]
(read-string (unescape s)))
