I hope that it's safe and accurate to say that "none of us will do that -- just the very opposite." What I'm trying to get across is that there's no reason for excessive emotional investment here: the withdrawal procedure exists for _exactly_ this kind of situation -- it _strengthens_ not weakens the prospects of an eventual revised resubmission. I again point to the history and references of SRFI-34 as a nice paradigm to follow. I've read the proposed SRFI. I'm firmly on the side of the skeptics -- it ain't ready for prime time. I'm not alone in that judgement. What are the possibilities? + Scott's a troll, out to abuse the SRFI process. Luckilly, the process is pretty robust wrt that. My intuition is that Scott is _not_ a troll and, if he is, woo-hoo! he managed to get a document archived somewhere while more serious people thought a bit about the serious topic of collections. + The skeptics are just way wrong. Maybe. The "meta-SRFI" idea isn't completely full of it. But at the very least, the _very_ least, the SRFI process isn't intended for "meta-SRFIs". So, withdrawal makes sense even so. + The skeptics are right-enough -- the proposal is withdrawn We can all look forward to a much improved resubmission sometime in the future. -t
