Absolutely, for members of the "post-Scheme community".  But some of us
remain loyal to the language of 80 divergent implementations, in which
pairs are mutable, lists are built from them, and arbitrarily large
numbers of arguments are expressed using lists.  Are those decisions
ideal?  No.  But they are part of what makes "naš jezik" what it is.
