RE: #!sweet (was copy pasting sweet expressions)

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 110 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 110 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

I think it's important to have *some* marker that clearly indicates "start accepting sweet-expressions".

The proposal uses #!sweet, in analogy to #!fold-case and #!no-fold-case.

Jos Koot has checked out Racket's documentation and sees no conflict in Racket.  Racket's docs (quoting Jos Koot) say:
> #! is an alias for #lang followed by a space when #! is followed by

We can certainly pick another marker or approach if an alternative is better.  Is there an alternative proposal?  Or is this reasonable enough?
