In my rush to finish my overly long message last night, I made some absurd comments at the end about Richard Kelsey's proposal. I meant to say that the READER-SYNTAX form was orthogonal to the rest of that proposal and could go into another SRFI, but I got carried away and said that the FILES and CODE forms are orthogonal also. This is nonsense, because Kelsey was proposing a separate configuration language, which must be connected to Scheme code in some way. I apologize for broadcasting this nonsense. To clarify further: I actually like the idea of a separate configuration language for Scheme programs. This would make it easier for a compiler to get around some of the barriers to compiler optimization that are created by compiling individual forms or files separately. Will
