Description

see: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/clojure/Kl3WVtEE3FY/discussion

\x.. characters (which are the same as \u00.. characters) are produced by some systems. in particular clojurescript

Inability to read these characters hinders data interchange

After a quick look, I believe this capability can be easily introduced by adding a case to this
https://github.com/clojure/clojure/blob/master/src/jvm/clojure/lang/LispReader.java#L445 function.
Mirroring 'u' case and reading only 2 chars.
