The appropriate use I can think of for safe and unsafe modes would be
debugging programs.  And that is done on the basis of individual files
and modules.

I don't disagree with your semantics for safe and unsafe mode - basically
it's just a switch and when it's on most errors are required to be checked
for and signalled - but I do think that if it's defined globally now,
it will have to be redefined on the basis of files and modules later.

It's not a bad idea; I just want to see R6RS and a functioning module
system to integrate it with before pushing forward.
