You wrote, what I myself would have `requested'
the `extension community' to do, too.

It's the problem of inventing the wheel once again ...
It's the problem of `keeping the name space clean'.

This will be best for standardization of Scheme appendices, too.

Your proposal is part of basic software engineering education,
but sometimes we must repeat the lessons we learned earlier.



BTW There are still some people working at SNI Paderborn?
    Best wishes to the folks over there.
