My fault, indeed.

So, I have this srfi-35 module and want to access it's bindings from top
level and eval.

I figured that a somewhat typing-extensive way would be to import the
module into top level, renaming it's bindings and define top level
variables bound to the renamed imports.

The code snippet shows the example I used to try whether this works or

This one did.

I would rather have used (import (prefix srfi-35 srfi35:)) .  But either
I did not understand what I should put where I left the ellipsis here or
this might not work correctly at top level?  Whatever I tried, the top
level bindings ended up as undefined values (or was it unbound?).

At best I would like to do:

(define foo '(import (prefix srfi-35 srfi:35)))

(define bar '(import (rename srfi-18 (raise issue))))

(define (export-them! lst envt)
  (lambda (param init) (apply environment-extend! init param) init)

(define env (make-environment))

(export-them! foo env)
(export-them! bar env)

Now in "env" "issue" is bound to "raise", SRFI-35 is bound with prefix.

Desperately: get an example how to save some typing with rename.

Alternatively: get an idea how to save even more typing using low level
