Ah, very good. A nice list. I like the simple generic names "string",
"list". It would be nice to have some hierarchical naming for core
modules, what do you think about "chicken.string", "chicken.list"
etc. (even though I prefer the plural form, that is, "strings")? In
R7RS that would map to "(chicken string)" and so on. I can't remember
whether we have considered "list"-syntax for module names yet. Should
that be added? There is some ambiguity with that, when
import-modifiers come into play...
