Multiple LAMBDA evaluations
I have two questions:
(1) Are issues like the following best raised in the general Scheme
community (e.g., SCHEME@MIT-MC) or here among the RRRS authors?
I'm a little confused about the intended difference when it comes to
(2) When a given lambda expression is evaluated more than once, is it
required/allowed/disallowed that the procedure objects returned be
EQ? to each other?
The Common Lisp book addresses this issue on page 88: ``In
situations where a closure of a lambda-expression over the same
set of bindings may be produced more than once, the various
resulting closures may or may not be EQ, at the discretion of the
implementation.'' This allows certain useful optimizations and
clarifies the semantics of the language a bit.
My reading of the RRRS is that this interpretation is implicitly
supported for Scheme; however, there may be other opinions. Does
anyone object to adding similar language to the RRRS to clarify
