`ctor' and SRFI-0

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 10 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 10 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

Two minor comments on SRFI-10:

What is `ctor' as used in `define-reader-ctor'?  A contraction
of `constructor'?  Why not spell it out?

I don't understand the statement

   A "Feature-based conditional expansion construct" introduced in
   SRFI-0 can easily be implemented as a read-time application.

Example 8 shows has #,(cond-expand ...), which is a use of SRFI-0,
not an implementation.  And it is an invalid use of #, because
`cond-expand' is syntax.
