I'd like to clearify one point. Suppose I have /usr/share/scheme and /home/shiro/scheme in SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH, in that order, and I have those files: /usr/share/scheme/acme/foo.sls /home/shiro/scheme/acme/foo.sls /home/shiro/scheme/acme/foo.myscheme.sls If myscheme wants to import (acme foo), should it load the "first match" which is /usr/share/scheme/acme/foo.sls, or should it keep looking for the "best match", which is /home/shiro/scheme/acme/foo.myscheme.sls?
A library found in the first path should be the one picked because that's how search paths work: you search in the first, then the second, and so on. If the SRFI is unclear about this, it should be made clear. Aziz,,,
