SRFI 125 has three issues left:  bounds, salt, and the implementation.

For bounds, it's just a question of how to expose the default bounds:
a variable (simplest), a procedure (possibly slow) or syntax (fast
but awkward).  I'll think on that one.

For salt, I think I'll go with allowing salt to be passed to a hash
function, requiring it to be a negative exact integer, and not explaining
why.  This affects SRFI-128 hash functions too.

The implementation by Will Clinger isn't up to date, but it's just a
matter of whacking on it until it is.  Unfortunately, with so many irons
in the fire I don't have time to do that, and I doubt if Will does either.
Can we let it go through anyway, and hope to make the changes later?
