I feel somewhat passionately for GNU/POSIX-style command-line
processing.  After a few weeks' absence from PLT Scheme, I usually
have to read the docs to actually believe they've done this
differently from everyone else.  I find PLT's way of doing things
unnecessarily hard to remember.

If the quotes don't pacify the opposition, how-about


or something?
