Well, I still don't see one case as different from the other. Perhaps
this has to do with the fact that I routinely use a Lisp that has both
something like CALL-WITH-VALUES and APPLY and use them about the same
way - one is not used more tail-recursively than the other - maybe
that's the difference between reading/writing papers and
reading/writing code.

Certainly confusing the language with two similar operations with
arguments in different orders is nothing compared to the damage done
by adding CALL/CC, but I suppose Scheme is a language for writing
papers not code: CALL/CC is a tenure-seeker's dream come true.
