Some of the names in SRFI-1 seem needlessly abbreviated. I am thinking about XCONS could be REVERSE-CONS FOLDL could be FOLD-LEFT FOLDR could be FOLD-RIGHT PAIR-FOLDL could be PAIR-FOLD-LEFT PAIR-FOLDR could be PAIR-FOLD-RIGHT REDUCEL could be REDUCE-LEFT REDUCER could be REDUCE-RIGHT Some of these abbreviations are common in the FP community, for sure, but nothing appears gained by using the abbreviations when the fully expanded names are less cryptic, barely longer, and do not preempt other useful names (REDUCER is a natural name for a procedure that is passed to REDUCE-*, for example). Thus, I suggest that these procedures be renamed as above. Along the same lines, DELQ and DELV (or REMQ and REMV) are perhaps reasonable because they are symmetric with ASSQ and ASSV, but rather than introducing the general DEL it seems more appropriate to allow an optional argument to DELETE, as Sergei Egorov has already suggested. --lars
