That's fine. I am sure that you will get used to it if you contribute a lot.

Thanks for doing that! I have only read SRFI-64 yet, but I have a few comments.

First of all, it would be nice you had tests for it. You might be able
to use SRFI-64 to test itself, which would be cool.

Second, since your changes add compatibility for several Scheme
implementations, have you thought about trying to make them part of
the reference implementation? You would probably have to email Per
Bothner to ask him, but that might be the best way to make your
changes available to all of the implementations you are making it for.
If not, I hope Guile would like to have it, but I think you are
targeting more than just Guile.
