Well, in Python I had to parse the usage string, in Scheme I would just
write the usage message as an s-expression, and I would generate the 
usage string from it. So, no parsing problem at all. 
I did some experiments months ago but I don't find the code now.

I think args-fold is affected by excessive generalization: 99% of times
something much simpler would do the job just fine (the same is true
for optparse in Python, BTW; I never needed all its functionalities in
real life).
