RE: Char sets, Unicode & deadline

Forgive me for being dense, but how can you be able to implement cs-filter
efficiently and not pred->cs?  You're going to have to write pred->cs as
half of cs-filter, before the union op.

Problem is that the proposed rev evangelizes char-set-filter +
char-set:ascii as the portable safe-performance solution.  Naive client
either calls that and gets a char-set limited to the ascii domain, or
supplies char-set:full and hits all the problems thereon that you've already

Again, I want laziness only as an option.

If pred->cs is not in theis SRFI, then you can implement it however
you want.  I'm not enthusiastic about having to implement such a
beast just to claim that my implementation is SRFI-14 compliant.
