I meant: So why don't WE ALL put some hard work into it, by having
a (sometimes perhaps overly heated, but nevertheless useful)
discussion? I should have worded it more carefully, Sorry.

BTW, I was grateful for the advance look, I pointed out several
issues, some were addressed, some were not. I was (and still am)
very excited about the possibilities of such a SRFI, but from what
others have pointed out here, I more and more realize that there
are many more problems with the current draft that I initially
thought. And I've seen alternatives in this discussion that show
how one could do it better.
