SRFI-108 is pretty huge and scares me somewhat.

It's basically Scribble with a slightly different syntax, meant to
share syntax with SRFI-109 quasi-strings.

Well, Scribble is fairly complex too.  But on double checking
SRFI-108 is not as large as I thought - I think it was the whole
set 107, 108, 109 that was intimidating.  I'll take a closer look.

I think using @ for rough Scribble compatibility, or \ for LaTeX
familiarity and backwards compatibility with Scheme would be a
good idea though.
