vectors of numbers




Dear Alex,

Did you consider the idea of extending the interface to vectors
of numbers? In other words, in each place where a write procedure
accepts an /int/ it would also accept a vector of /int/ and write the
components of the vector one by one.

This is a conceptually simple way to improve performance without
much impact or special constructs in Scheme-land. Lazy implementors
can simply catch the vector case and pass it to a loop.

Sebastian.
