I hear rumours in irc that you've got some help implementing this beast. Most excellent! Don't use SRFI for this. Start a savannah project. Advertise it on c.l.s. Let's get a kick-ass, comprehensive collections library up and running on several implementations. Given that, the srfi will be close to a mere formality. Prior to finalization of the srfi, if the library is any good, people will start using it. (We could also use srfis for "POSIX filesystem interface" and "POSIX subprocess interface". We don't have them yet. In the meanwhile -- at least some implementors are working on SCSH compatability. You don't need a srfi to start work on a standard. (of course, we have to convince Olin that, before writing any POSIX srfis, he has get that system calls can return errno values and other error values rather than throwing exceptions :-)) -t
