It does, but even if I modified head I would not expect it to do what you want. A ". x" by itself returns just "x" in other cases, so for consistency, adding a rule about "." in head would still create an additional (...). But that's okay, because I think what you want is: define-library ! example grid ! export make rows cols ref each rename(put! set!) ! import scheme(base) ! . ! <* ! ;stuff *> Or, just: define-library . <* example grid export make rows cols ref each rename(put! set!) import scheme(base) ;stuff *> If constructs like this are common: ! . ! <* ... *> Then we could argue that "\\" after "." is reasonable, e.g.: ! . \\ <* ... *> However, I do worry that the sequence ". \\ <*" completely fails the "it's obvious what it means" test. > Definitely working out well for me so far.
