I don't understand why you say this. Consider: (operator operand-1 operand-2 operand-3) => operator operand-1 operand-2 operand-3 Okay, so sweet expressions allow us to get rid of many parentheses. That doesn't mean that we should throw away the nice vertical-stack formatting that most Schemers are accustomed to. This question of which column to indent to is orthogonal to the s-exprs vs t-exprs question: (operator operand-1 operand-2 operand-3) => operator operand-1 operand-2 operand-3 Regards, Mark
