There's no incompatibility, as the names I use are completely disjoint from those of SRFI. Both can co-exist peacefully. I should probably put in a note that a Scheme system that supports SRFI 4 is expected to use the same underlying type as u8vector. -- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
