Thanks for taking them into account. I will be sending more. I've been
reading these reports since R3RS.

By the way, the References section still says that Clinger's proper
tail recursion paper, [10], is _to appear_ ... in 1998.

Is the etiquette such that one replies to the sender and cc's the
list? I'm doing a follow-up in Gnus. I hope this keeps the archive
properly threaded.

Thanks. I'm not sure what a script environment is. Clarify that in the
report, too, unless it is something for the large language.
