Hey again!

I just re-read my message and noticed it could come off as somewhat dismissive. 
Ah, the joys of not having English as a first language while being a tired 
father :)

I looked through your code. It is nicer than mine, but why did you chose to not 
just re-export bindings that are available in srfi60? I don't know the 
practical implications of not doing so, but I read in another thread of 
potential cross-module Inlining, and helping that optimization in every way you 
can would be a great thing for low level stuff like bit fiddling :)

If you want you can just copy it from my module declaration. You can have it, 
no attribution required. Or you could just do the renaming in the #:re-export
