Re: Two maybe-bugs and two proposals

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 67 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 67 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

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.
