I'd love to do that, but I'm not sure what to say.  Hopefully someone else
can figure out some ideas, and I can pull together some appropriate prose.

I'd also like close reviews of this SRFI, with particular regard to what
procedures should be excluded or included.  I feel like this proposal is
groping in the dark.
