Martin and I discussed this, but decided against putting it in SRFI 22. We plan to do separate SRFI on this, and fully expect implementations which support SRFI 22 to also support that SRFI. This way, the environment SRFI can be shared among different operating systems. -- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
