Multiple values for R4RS.
You are ignoring Kent's point.
Using the orginal ground rules from Brandeis -- I don't know what the
ground rules are now -- if everyone wanted A and B, and not everyone
wanted C, then A and B would go in the report and those who wanted C
could have it in their implementations. You have taken the tactic of
getting C in the report by refusing to agree to A and B, but offering
to agree on A, B, and C together. You claim that having A and B
imposes something on you while trying to impose C on everyone else.
So now Kent is making similar offers about those C which he cares
You are ignoring my position. I DON'T WANT multiple values UNLESS I
can truncate values conveniently. That does not mean that I require
the default be to truncate values, just that it be possible for me to
do so. Otherwise I personally find no use for multiple values, and
would rather not have them in the language at all.
