Sure.  In that case, you're no worse off because of the existence of
SRFI 26.  Arguably, you're probably just going to copy the sample
implementation into your own code.

So we're trying to figure out if the SRFI is general enough.  Walter
says it isn't.  I say it is.  It solves most of my problems.  Is it
general enough for you?
