Not to be inflamatory, but the SRFI process is in part a response to the 
unanimous RnRS process which severely restricts forward motion.  It is 
bad style to finalize an SRFI without concensus, but its hard to say at 
this point whether we have a majority concensus.  We have, so far, Oleg, 
myself, Taylor, and Matthias for continued discussion towards correction 
of concrete issues, vs yourself, Tom, and Ray against.  This is why I 
want more opinions.  I'm especially wanting to hear informed opinions 
from implementors and respected members of the Scheme community.
