  during summer I browsed through srfi specification and as an excercice I
implemented srfi-26 (curry-which-is-not-curry :-). I hope somebody with
write access to CVS will like it and commit it.

  I found cut and cute macros very handy (they usually safe you a lot of
boring typing and screen space :-) so maybe they should be also part of

Have a nice day,

ps: The reference implementation uses define-syntax instead of define-macro.
I chose define-macro since I prefere this way of writing macros and
(use-modules (ice-9 syncase)) doubles guile startup time (at least on my comp).

;--- srfi/srfi-26.scm: 

(define-macro (cut slot . slots)
  (let loop ((slots     (cons slot slots))
             (params    '())
             (args      '()))
    (if (null? slots)
        `(lambda ,(reverse! params) ,(reverse! args))
      (let ((s    (car slots))
            (rest (cdr slots)))
        (case s
           (let ((var (gensym)))
             (loop rest (cons var params) (cons var args))))
           (if (pair? rest)
               (error "<...> not on the end of cut expression"))
           (let ((var (gensym)))
             `(lambda ,(append! (reverse! params) var)
                (apply ,@(reverse! (cons var args))))))
           (loop rest params (cons s args))))))))

(define-macro (cute . slots)
  (let ((temp (map (lambda (s) (and (not (memq s '(<> <...>))) (gensym))) 
    `(let ,(delq! #f (map (lambda (t s) (and t (list t s))) temp slots))
       (cut ,@(map (lambda (t s) (or t s)) temp slots)))))
