In fact, I'm getting *really* annoyed now.  *As you know* (having had
advance look at this SRFI months ago), we put some *very* hard work
even in the current draft.

I meant: So why don't WE ALL put some hard work into it, by having
a (sometimes perhaps overly heated, but nevertheless useful)
discussion? I should have worded it more carefully, Sorry.

BTW, I was grateful for the advance look, I pointed out several
issues, some were addressed, some were not. I was (and still am)
very excited about the possibilities of such a SRFI, but from what
others have pointed out here, I more and more realize that there
are many more problems with the current draft that I initially
thought. And I've seen alternatives in this discussion that show
how one could do it better.

Hey, Felix---the thing's been in draft for 2 weeks.  Sorry we haven't
addressed "many of the issues" yet. They're complicated, and they're
not nearly as simple as you make them out to be.  Most of us have day

Well, I hope you get find the time to fix it, then. :-P
