Re: Two maybe-bugs and two proposals

Thought about that, too. When we changed from (<? compare) to (<? compare x y)
the previous functionality got lost, and this is a way to get it back included;
we would like to support different styles (within reason) of using the functionality
of the SRFI. I need to think about the implications some more.

Why not have <? with a single parameter produce a predicate, and with
more parameters do the operation?  Reduces cognitive load, and gives
the best of both worlds.
