Do this on your own time if you wish (that's the whole point of Lisp,
isn't it?), but please don't waste anyone's time standardizing this. The
'standard' Lisp should be somewhat smaller than Scheme, with the basic
engine defined. _Everything_ else should be libraries, packages, etc.
The various libraries and packages can be separately standardized, if you
want, but don't bog down the basic engine with this stuff.
