That's the theory, yes.  But there's nothing to prevent implementers
from doing things slightly differently.  One thing I have learned in this
process is that (excepting Chibi, which is made for the purpose) there is
no such thing as a 100% compliant implementation of any Scheme standard.

A few times, I did some exuberant stomping about,       John Cowan
like a hippo auditioning for Riverdance, though         cowan@x
I stopped when I thought I heard something at           http://ccil.org/~cowan
the far side of the room falling over in rhythm
