Wow, you're right. There are several unnecessary safeguards in the
text of R7RS-small, in that case. For example, to unquote (without
splicing) something named "@foo", you must write ", @foo", as ",@foo"
always means splicing-unquote. Chibi allows @foo as an identifier.

I think that's a little Perlish, but if it works for you, it's fine
