Hi Felix, > If we restrict ourselves to SRFIs that can be implemented on any R5RS > system without changes, we would get nowhere. I'm not suggesting that we should restrict ourselves to SRFIs that can be implemented using only R5RS features. Neither am I suggesting that we limit ourselves to SRFIs that can be implemented on all "common" Schemes (although it may be a good idea). Sorry if I've not been clear. However, I think it would be reasonable to explicitly state in the SRFI document whether a SRFI (a) can be implemented using only R5RS features; (b) can be implemented in all common Schemes using non-R5RS features; or (c) cannot be implemented in all common Schemes. Obviously, "all common Schemes" is open to interpretation, but it should certainly include Scheme48, and so, in the spirit of full disclosure, SRFI-55 should include a statement along the lines of (c).
