Revised SRFI-76 (R6RS Records) draft



Folks,

A revised draft of SRFI-76 (R6RS Records) has been posted, and the draft period extended to 2006-04-01.

As described by the authors, the following changes have been made:

- We completely replaced the constructor mechanism by a more
  orthogonal and simpler one.  The INIT! clause has been removed as a
  consequence.

- The issue and rationale sections have been removed.

- Fields ids must be integers now.

- The default for opacity has reverted to "transparent".

- The reference implementation is now based on the more primitive
  notions of "vector types" and "opaque cells."

- Added RECORD-TYPE-GENERATIVE?

- The operand to the SEALED and OPAQUE clauses is restricted to #t and
  #f literally.

- The syntactic form has been renamed to DEFINE-RECORD-TYPE, with
  other renames in its wake.

- Many minor edits.
