Because it relies on FORMAT, SRFI 29 can't accomodate language ordering

I would like to recommend changing SRFI 29 to support reordering in a
The full Common Lisp format provides re-ordering. So do some
Scheme implementations of format, include the one in Slib and
the one in Kawa.
#|kawa:1|# (format "Here are ~1@*~a and ~0@*~a!" 'jim 'john)
Here are john and jim!
I suggest that SRFI-28 be extended to support ~N@*. Alternatively,
one coudl have SRFI-29 require this extension.
