The base-one converter in my code is just a hack that counts the
number of numeric digits following the '#'... as I said, it's not very
useful and it is handled differently than the others...

Umm... given that the largest digit in a given radix is one less than
the radix, should that be 1#000 gets converted to 0? 1 wouldn't be a
valid digit in base 1 just as 2 is not a valid digit in base 2.
