Why not have both, the macro and the procedure?

The example of call-with-values suggests that, if people use a
thunked procedure frequently, someone will eventually add a dethunked
form.  Since such a form has been proposed and uses basically
the same implementation as the procedure, we could save someone a
future SRFI and add it now.
