How it *looks* is what this srfi is basically about, right?

Yes, but I prefer denser code and sometimes I drop those
whitespaces to avoid the expression spill over to the next line,
so turning on n-exprs outside {} is dangerous for my code base.

Plus, my mental parser is trained to see f(x) as two items f and (x)
when it's in "s-expression" mode, so mixing s-exprs and n-exprs
wouldn't work for me.
Have you written code mixing s-exprs and n-exprs *without* using
c-exprs and t-exprs?  If so, how did it work for you?
