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.
