I refrained the first time around, but I really must object to this "less typing" advantage. It's an extremely short-sighted reason to support a proposal. If you want less typing, use macros or scripts to do the typing for you. It's an extremely trivial advantage, and all too often it turns into a net disadvantage in the long run. As for more natural, more straightforward, more portable: The first two are aesthetic judgments, and obviously several people disagree with your subjective opinion. The last makes no sense whatsoever; how is your proposal any more portable than SRFI-7? -- Bradd W. Szonye http://www.szonye.com/bradd
