Adding to guile curly-infix (SRFI 105), neoteric- & sweet-expressions

I'd really like feedback on proposed new SRFIs, and I'd like to help get these 
SRFIs implemented in guile.

Background: The "readable" group has developed and refined 3 new reader 
abbreviations for Scheme: curly-infix-, neoteric-, and sweet-expressions.  Each 
builds on the previous one; details are here:

We plan to submit all three abbreviations as three separate SRFIs.   The first 
one, curly-infix-expressions, is new draft SRFI 105, and we'd ESPECIALLY like 
comments on that:

The whole point of a SRFI is to get it *implemented*, so if you have a comment 
(such as a *problem* with them or getting any of them implemented in guile), 
please let us know!!  The best way to comment is the mailing lists (for the 
SRFIs or via, so that everyone can discuss and 
address them.

Also, I'd be happy to help get these implemented as part of guile.  We have a 
current implementation that builds on *top* of guile (by completely 
re-implementing the reader), but it'd far better to have these built-in.

Thanks for your time!
