Sorry, I must have missed that.  (I did do the cursory exam of the
archives and googled for the relevant keywords, but came up empty.)

I agree with your conclusions.  (Or is there anything unresolved I
missed?  If so, let me know.)

Taylor> the insertion & deletion routines,

Zap 'em, I say.  Marginal value, conceptual & space overhead in the
SRFI document.

Taylor> and the issue regarding start+end versus N vector arguments?

Hm, I actually think the way things are isn't half bad.  This really
is the kind of thing where only experience helps, so I wouldn't worry
about it too much now.  I do suspect, though, that the procedures
under "Searchers" would be better off with start+end args rather than
N vectors, though.
