This SRFI proposes a social convention to allow programmers to easily create short, simple Scheme symbols which are guaranteed to be universally unique: No other programmer also following this SRFI will accidentally create a symbol eq? to yours.

Universally unique symbols are useful to identify standards, languages, libraries, types, classes, and other resources.
