Some adapters which take a Scheme type and return a collection could do this, presumably within the bounds of the current 44 spec, although I haven't tried to prove that to myself. Would that approach satisfy you, or do you think that the collection procedures should be able to operate directly on "unwrapped" Scheme types? Anton
