Re: Scheme RFCs
1. I agree with Olin and Alan and whoever else thinks that schemers.org
should be a repository of Scheme factoids and requests for
2. BUT, recall that we also wanted to give Scheme implementors the ability
to provide a mechanism like
(require-srfi 'srfi123 'srfi45 'srfi3)
with which a programmer can request the reference implementations of
SRFI, if provided.
3. So, I suggest that we distinguish between SRFIs that are requesting an
implementation and those that record a factoid ( (! 1) = 1 :-). How the
SRFI people do that, I don't care. They can use names like iSRFI and
fSRFI or have two separate threads ...
Personally I think that two separate "threads" would be best: one that
would be `restrictive' as suggested by the SRFI editors and another that
would be `open' as suggested by Alan, Olin, etc.
