I think I might rather go with the SRFI since that means any records
written have a much greater possibility of being able to be parsed by
other schemes, or at least a much greater possibility that other
schemes can be taught how to parse them without modifying the
implementation, and unless we're going to try to come up with some
kind of record standard, it might even make sense to use something
like #,(scmrec ...), that's more guile-specific than "record".
