Can non-committee member can get an account to comment on tickets,
or is that intended for the committee only?
For example, with respect to: http://trac.sacrideo.us/wg/ticket/214 says:
Using "\xX...;" as escape sequence is suboptimal, as it confuses
syntax highlighters. I also have no knowledge of any precedent
of this syntax. Also: how is this sequence handled inside "|...|"?
My comment would be:
The precedent is R6RS.
Existing implementations, including Kawa, implement this syntax.
A change in this would be pointless churn - no action is needed.
