Thanks, that's grand, let's use yours.  I prefer the less powerful but more
general-purpose dot operator when applicable, but it seems that ellipses and
unquote-splicing are favored in the wider code pool.  As I see it, this is a
cool forum, and a little consistency will probably go far.  Good to see that
overall structure didn't need to be changed, I haven't done much templating.
Neat in their way, but I got waaaay turned off veeeery early on by the lack of
non-hygienic bindings.  Got any dirty pre-emptive hacks for dirty template
bindings?  Otherwise I'm likely to waste time mucking about with eval in a
couple SRFIs I've held off in anticipation of requests for R5RS code.
