An addendum: test two is only out of whack on its line and column 
number information; I think the positions it lists are fine.

A new question: why must the offset-list argument to read-syntax 
provide column and line number information?
I'm not sure I want to take the time to make line and column numbers 
work, and I know that the DrScheme stack traces can get by with only 
position info, so why is the interface for read-syntax forcing me to 
provide bogus line and column numbers when all I want to do is override 
the position info for the syntax objects I read in?
