I have two problems with foof-loop: (1) It's conceptually rather complex, trying to be all-singing-all-dancing. I haven't yet fully groked it. (However, that can be ok, as long as the simple and common use cases are easy to read and write.) (2) It's a bit verbose, especially for simple things: (loop ((for element (in-list list))) ...) compared to Racket: (for ((element list)) ...) or: (for ((element (in-list list))) ...) -- --Per Bothner per@xxxxxxxxxxx http://per.bothner.com/
