This code snippet works for me here, using ATpy. and 
asciitable.0.5.2. In the case of type='asciitable', the read() method 
delegates most of its work to asciitable, and so 'fill_values' should 
be a feature of this module. As far as I can tell, the 'fill_values' 
parameter was introduced in version 0.4.0 of asciitable, can you check 
your version info for this ?
