I have no problem with that, and have been doing it.

Indeed, and thanks for that.  But people are asking what
the process is, and you weren't recommending that they
do the same as you.

What would this consist of?  Something should go in the large language
because it seems useful for practical Scheme programs.  That's a rather
generic answer.

I basically meant to advertise a little better for busy people.

I have no desire to try to amend the SRFI process at this point.  In
practice, extensions have been easily achieved.  I really don't want
there to be too much time, such that all sense of momentum is lost.

We don't have to amend the SRFI process, you can just
say in the announcement that since this is an R7RS SRFI
you will automatically be requesting an extension after the
first two months.
