       One idea is that the way to combine a file from its parts would be
       extensible in Scheme.

    Sorry, I don't understand.

The idea is that the special file system that composes /etc/inetd.conf
by concatenating the pieces supplied by various packets
could also offer the option to compose /etc/funny-format-file
from pieces in some sophisticated way, by letting you provide
a Scheme program to do the job of combining them.  You would
specify how to combine things in /etc/funny-format-file by writing
the Scheme program to do it.
