"... the language should be backwards compatible with the IEEE standard,
the R5RS standard, and an appropriate subset of the R6RS standard."

PWUAHAHAHAHAHHAHAA!!!!!

>> charter for working group 2:

"The purpose of working group 2 is to develop specifications, documents,
and proofs of implementability for a language in the Scheme family that
is large enough to address the practical needs of mainstream software
development.

The purpose of the language is to facilitate sharing of Scheme code."

Oh. So after a million lines of flaming the Schemers quietly concede the
tiny little minimalist raison d'etre of the language was, um, a mistake?

Let's see....

"Working group 2 may also consider whether it is practical to add new
features to support networking, threads, internationalization,
foreign-function interfaces, et cetera."

Yep. The neat thing is they are standardizing more than CL! I wonder if
that is where they are drawing the line...

"Working group 2 is encouraged to propose new working groups for any new
features that it considers desirable but cannot pursue without risking
the timeliness of its primary mission."

Oh, my. I smell "most-positive-working-group". Does this mean....

"The names of the languages to be developed by working groups 1 and 2
have not yet been determined. The Steering Committee will consider names
suggested by the working groups."

Yep.

Well, Common Scheme would be too humiliating and raise a rather large
and obvious question. ("Can't you just crawl off and die?".) That leaves
Big Bang Scheme and Commune Scheme.

Y'all know my vote.

> I should volunteer.

We can dream.

Misery loves company. I.e., since CL is dead, Kenny-boy wants to kill
Scheme.

Commune-, Commode-, COBOL-, and Cthulhu- have already been taken by CL.
And the opinion of a truly mediocre programmer is irrelevant, anyway.

Well Big Toilet err... Bigloo Scheme is also used. Damned.
