The latest draft looks good to me.  I have written and posted a full
implementation of SRFI-105 on guile-devel@xxxxxxx, and expect it to be
deployed in Guile 2.0.7.

I hope that other Scheme implementors and users will read SRFI-105 with
an open mind.  In my experience, seasoned Schemers (and Lispers) tend to
have a knee-jerk reaction to any infix proposal, assuming that it will
destroy the special properties of s-expressions that make them superior
to other syntaxes.  That is _not_ the case for SRFI-105.  It is a well
designed syntax that deserves your consideration.

Thanks to David and Alan for working so hard on this, and to all those
who participated in the drafting of SRFI-105.
