Making the new let easier to stomach

Hi Andy,

Many thanks for creating SRFI 5.  Two comments:

- You're essentially arguing for replacing R5RS let with the one you
  propose.  This is totally valid.

  As it SRFI, your proposal is still only a suggestion for an addition
  to the language.  Why not rename it to something other than let?
  This would also make it easier to use for people dealing with legacy

- Is there a way to define the construct using standard R5RS macros
  rather than explicit renaming (which is only supported by one or two
  Scheme systems)?

Cheers =8-} Mike
