In general, however, I'd prefer if Scheme supported efficient binary
I/O via some essential procedures. The current set of standard I/O
procedures, both text based and for data structures, is at best
adequate for writing toy programs.
Yes. And this is also tied in with CHAR-CODE-LIMIT. I have written
routines which convert integers to 4 byte strings. It is not portable
because it depends on 8 bit characters. But if CHAR-CODE-LIMIT were
defined, it could be portable.
