I asked about this in the context of "include" before :
How modules are mapped to the filesystem, and how they are located by
"include", is unspecified in R7RS, and that's a good thing. However, we
might want to give some recommendations so that we have a certain amount
of compatibility between implementations. More specifically, we could
recommend in the hierarchical filesystem case to search for a module
named "(foo bar ... baz)" by loooking up
"foo/bar/.../baz.(scm|ss|sls|whatever)" relative to a
implementation-defined set of directories.
I don't know where this should go, though. Will R7RS have a document
like the R6RS "Non-Normative Appendices" published with it? That would
be a perfect fit.
What do you think?
