The following is a list of changes to the R4RS, which are being
requested by the IEEE Working Group on Scheme. It would be
appreciated if the changes could be implemented, or appropriate
comments generated, in time for the July 7 meeting of the Working
I'm not sure how such things can be decided over the net, but given
that these changes are believed to be non-controversial, perhaps we
could take an informal vote after suitable discussion.
* We request that `list-ref' and `list-tail' have their status changed
from inessential to essential.
I continue to believe that these functions should be scrapped from the
language altogether. As a result, I would be opposed to them getting an
upgrade in status.
