It is not possible to define a correct implementation of `quote' which produces random-access pairs as a library form, so I could not provide a portable reference implementation if this feature was added. On the other hand, it seems useful to have such a form. Which do people prefer: portability of the reference implementation or utility of the specification? They seem to be at odds in this case.
