Rationale question

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 71 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 71 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

A minor point: I'm not sure I follow your Rationale for the
alternative point of view:

I'm not sure what VALUES->LIST is supposed to be---given the symmetry
between return values and arguments, I'd say it'd have to be

(define (values->list . vals)

This procedure is called LIST in R5RS, so LIST-VALUES isn't a name
symmetric with anything.  UNLIST seems fine.

Or am I missing something?
