I don't know any other way to do it.  However, though not part of
R7RS-small, SRFI 69 hash tables are fairly pervasive, because they are
simple, have a reference implementation, and can be built on top of
R6RS hashtables (which are standard).  The only reason they aren't in
more Schemes is that as SRFIs go, 69 is a fairly recent one.  I wouldn't
hesitate to use them.
