Oops, it is illegal? I thought I checked before proposing
:<type> syntax for generators in SRFI 42...
...ok, identifiers may start with a ':' according
<identifier> -> <initial> <subsequent>^*
<initial> -> <letter> | <special
<special initial> -> :
<subsequent> -> <initial> |
You are probably mixing it up with <peculiar identifier>,
(+ - ...) which must not be followed by other stuff.
Which also means, btw, that the <keyword>: syntax
conflict with R5RS identifiers.
Marc, am I missing something here?
