is there no procedure to create bytevectors beyond using the reader syntax
#u8(n ...). Will there be a (bytevector n ...) constructor in the final
I've failed to come up with any discussion or rationale behind this in the
R7RS drafts, the tickets, ballots and the internal and public discussion
As a user (and hobbyist implementor) of R7RS I would expect a certain
symmetry with vectors and SRFI-4, which both have procedural constructors.
It's cumbersome having to combine make-bytevector and bytevector-u8-set! (if
that's the current naming convention).
