My only worry is that the name 'count' clashes with a traditional name for a procedure that counts the number of elements of a collection that satisfy some predicate (and could therefore be confusing, in addition to causing actual name collisions). I do not, however, have a concrete suggestion for doing better.
Yep -- it clashes with SRFI 1's `count', for example. I am really only worried about the confusion part. The library system lets me not worry too much about name clashes (hence my use of cons, car, cdr, ...).
If anyone has a better name, I'd like to hear it. David
