But Scheme48 does acknowledge the importance of being able to load modules at the REPL and provides the ,open module extension. Is there a reason this couldn't be made (open module) so that the same code could be used in the REPL and compiled? Not attacking here, genuinely curious. Is there really no point in standardizing any aspect of the REPL, something essentially every Scheme provides? It would at least be nice to keep the it as similar to compiled code as possible. -- Alex
