Here is one more egg:

This simply slaps a module/egg around srfi-101 "Purely Functional
Random-Access Pairs and Lists".

However I'm not yet confident that the way I'm handling exports is the
right thing to do.

Firstly I have not found a way to rename identifiers on export (as in
r6rs libraries).  Is there really no way or did I miss it?

Right now the egg contains two modules "srfi-101-ra" and "srfi-101".
The former exports all identifiers with the "ra:" prefix.  The latter is
only there to strip the prefix.

But if one simply does "(use srfi-101)" this behaves confusing.  It's a
bit hard to make sure "car", "map" etc. are what you expect when mixing
srfi-101 lists and native lists.

Should I rather not export anything from the "srfi-101" module and
require the user to import some (to be written) module?  Or is there a
better(TM) way?

Otherwise it may be ready to be added to the eggs listing too.
