It's said that a predicate is a procedure that returns #t or #f.
Perhaps it would be better as "an effect-free procedure that returns #t
or #f". The report does not contain any effectful predicates, but it
does set up a vocabulary for schemers to use, and predicates should not
have visible effects. As you like, though.
