Re: Should ":" be an extended alphabetic character?

I remember resolving to remove ":" from the set of extended alphabetic
characters, but apparently I was wrong...the report does indeed say that
":" is an extended alphabetic character.  I would (again) vote that it
be removed from this set.  One of our stated goals (which we of course
fall short of in other cases) is to avoid gratuitous incompatibilities
with Common Lisp.  Removing it means only that portable programs should
not use it, not that we are planning to standardize on packages!
