issue on this forum :).
I'd prefer the reflection operator to be RECORD->LIST or
RECORD->VECTOR though. The aggregation of things returned is
probably not going to make a coherent program expression; it
should be expressed as data instead, and the name of the
operator should reflect that.
Noted (although I did think the term sexpr has wider use than just for
program expressions). Reflection is probably the weakest part of the SRFI
and I am open to suggestions for improvement.
