Re: [Scheme-reports] boolean=?

Per Bothner scripsit:

The arguments are specified as "boolean1 boolean2 boolean3 ...", which
means it is an error to pass anything but a boolean.  So the words
"all the arguments are boolean and" are dispensable.

Any of these.  Personally, I would hope for an error.
