Thanks for the info. I've read recently, on this mailing list, that
eval is not part of R4RS. Is it possible to accomplish this same
function without using (eval '<Point>) ?? I guess (load "filename")
works, right ? Any other methods ? Just curious.

I think I've mentioned this before, is it possible to get one big
tar/gz'ed file of the mailing list archives ? It's kinda painful to
load in all 145k everytime I want to look for an answer - and it does
have lots of answers...

I certainly don't want to use up BW on a subject which has already
been discussed :-)
