Re: Names and primitives in SRFI 56



A number of Schemes (Scheme48 and Chicken, at least) support
byte-vectors for doing aggregate binary io.  This seems to satisfy most
needs for doing something beyond simple scalar io, while still allowing
the application to perform whatever interpretation is necessary.

I suppose some might consider it onerous to require implementing such a
data type for this SRFI, but I consider byte-vectors extraordinarily useful.
