Re: [Scheme-reports] [scheme-reports-wg1] Erratum for letrec* definition

Thanks.  I rewrote this using letrec* as:

(define (means ton)
        (lambda (f g)
          (f (/ (sum g ton) n))))
        (lambda (g ton)
          (if (null? ton)
            (if (number? ton)
                (g ton)
                (+ (sum g (car ton))
                   (sum g (cdr ton)))))))
      (n (sum (lambda (x) 1) ton)))
    (values (mean values values)
            (mean exp log)
            (mean / /))))

and added your example to both the errata page and the errata branch.

See LetrecStar on the wiki for which Schemes implement letrec*,
which implement letrec as letrec*, and how they handle internal defines.
