Yes that is perfectly compatible with my view of SRFI-0 and SRFIs in
general. However, I think it would be best to use:
rs +SRFI-1 portable-listy-program.scm
so that SRFI names are used in a consistent manner.
To the SRFI editors: you should touch up all the documents on
srfi.schemers.org so that they use a consistent naming scheme (perhaps
even for the mailing list names). For example, I've seen these
variants in different places: "SRFI-0", "SRFI 0" and "srfi-0" (I hope
you standardize on the "SRFI-0" notation). Also, there should be a
slot in the SRFI document for the SRFI name and a slot for an alias.
For example if SRFI-1 becomes popular then you could attribute the
alias "extended-list-operations" so that if-implements calls are less
(if-implements extended-list-operations A B)
