As I noted in my long email to Will, R5RS = different, not unspecified,
given that we define (= +nan.0 x) as false for any number x.  (I just
added this to the draft.)

Why are well-meaning Westerners so concerned that   John Cowan

the end of Chinese culture? [...]  We have had      http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
Chinese restaurants in America for over a century,
and it hasn't made us Chinese.  On the contrary,
we obliged the Chinese to invent chop suey.            --Marshall Sahlins
