Re: [Scheme-reports] "module" vs. "library"

Andre van Tonder scripsit:

Unit, component, package, struct(ure) are used in Schemes/Lisps in other
ways.  Collection and container suggest runtime objects.  Assembly is
heavily overloaded, but might have been good if the CLR hadn't used it.
Aggregation suggests an accidental rather than intentional combination.
Namespace (which you didn't mention) is already in use.

But keep going.

I like it, but I think not.
