Date: Fri, 18 Sep 2009 07:53:45 -0400 From: David Van Horn <dvanhorn@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> It's difficult to say since this was never an option for these programs, but I have frequently seen programs that convert between lists and vectors in order to enjoy the inductive structure of lists at times and the constant time access and update of vectors at others. In that case, I'd like to see some nice examples of these programs! I'm sure I've seen examples of this before, but nothing good jumps to mind (e.g., sorting a list by turning it into a vector). I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at with these questions. Are you not satisfied with the rationale in the document? Or is there some concrete change you'd like made to the specification and/or implementation? I think this is a very interesting SRFI. I suppose you could say that I'm not satisfied with the rationale, but only in that I suspect it could be made much stronger with some very nice examples of programs that derive great benefits from both constant-time CONS, CAR, & CDR, and logarithmic-time insert & update.
