This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 60 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 60 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

In all fairness, it's somewhat split.  Gauche, Guile and Kawa all use
the Common-Lisp names.  Bigloo, Chez, and MIT Scheme all use their own

In such a mixed state we should probably choose the names on their own
merit and readability.  I don't think we should provide any aliases
within the SRFI itself.

Personally, I strongly prefer the SRFI-33 names.
