Hi Felix and Panu, dear list readers.

If I understand correctly, we have this confusing mixture:

   chicken           SRFI-69          meaning

1. hash-table-size   -                number of buckets or so
2. hash-table-count  hash-table-size  number of associations

"size" seems preferred to indicate the number of associations in most languages.  Most use "capacity" to refer to buckets when necessary.
