Quiz: what does this do?
(define (f s)
(with-output-to-string (lambda () (display s))))
When called with a string, what should it do? Like (f "foo").
If you answered, "return the string", that's what I would think it
But no, currently the answer is locale-specific. It encodes the string
according to the current locale, then decodes it from that encoding. If
your locale can't encode the string, tough luck for you!
This is a bit crazy. Surely the port should be textual? Surely the
default encoding for a string port should be utf-8 or something that can
actually handle all strings?
