Hi Christine,

It looks to be about as spicy as a cucumber.  :)

I remembered that the R7RS Large process was giving library names to
SRFIs, but it looks like many of them now have a “library name” field in
their metadata.  For instance, see <>,
which says “library name: and-let*”.  Unfortunately, there are conflicts
(for example, 43 and 133 are both called “vectors”), so we might not be
able to take their names whole cloth.

Having many libraries named with a number is annoying to experienced
users and beginners alike.  Let’s fix it!

(I liked the rest of your message too, but the SRFI names really stand
out as something to be fixed IMO.)
