I strongly prefer XML-style with braces.  This use of braces will not
conflict with SRFI-105, nor will it conflict with the existing uses of
brackets as alternative parens.  (In Chicken, braces are also alternative
parens, unfortunately, but that can be changed.)

I haven't properly reviewed this paper yet, but I'm guessing it will
need some editorial reorganization as well.

More later.
