Well, at least Alex is consistent in his opinions. :-)
However, I'm not losing too much sleep. I suspect that implementations that have signed zero but are not IEEE will implement a fast native eqv? that behaves as (eqv? -0.0 +0.0) => #f and a slower R7RS eqv? that behaves as (eqv? -0.0 +0.0) => #t.
