My "any2ascii" external will basically do the same job than spell, but
will also add a "end of line" code at the end. I didn't know about
"spell", probably because its name is more metaphoric than descriptive;
there's so many externals out there that I think we should avoid
confusing users with non-descriptive names.

It's not easy to work with ascii codes; "ascii2any" will rebuild floats,
symbols and lists from ascii codes streams, in order to facilitate
parsing with a mix of route, sel and similar objects.
