No, that wasn't intended as a bug report, but if you say so ... ;-)

Ok, you fix the docu of LOAD (which doesn't say that .go files
are preferred over source), and I'll gladly use PRIMITIVE-LOAD
for my environment-dependent test programs. No more questions! ;-)

Maybe ... actually I'm more concerned now with better integrating
'psyntax' [7.3] into "my" Scheme. 'define-syntax defmacro' ala GUILE
seems to be working, but got to be exercised ... btw., in R6RS and
this latest "pre-R6RS" 'psyntax', the first argument to datum->syntax
must be an identifier, not an arbitrary syntax form. Permitting
the latter in the old 'psyntax' might have been a mistake ...
I've still got to read up some more, and think of a test.

Cheers & happy Easter,
