I'm laughing at you now, since you just don't seem to get it.  My
request was that the naming and functionality match SRFI-44, not that
this SRFI provide an implementation which portable works with SRFI-44.
 You're right the latter isn't possible (which I don't see as a
problem, since users don't create the implementations).  But matching
the interface keeps datastructures consistent and makes it simpler for
implementors to bind into their SRFI-44 collection sets.
