  f?  If this is what I think it is, namely a truly _perverted_
  Schemocentric world-view where Scheme's ridiculous set! is deemed
  the model for setf, there _is_ accounting for taste: Scheme is bad
  for young people's brains.

  No, not _necessarily_, but it doesn't help.  Everything good in
  Scheme is already adopted by every other language.  Being a
  minimalist language, that means whatever is left is just trash
  waiting for the last reference to go before it is collected and
  carted out.

| you may actually be the only one this bothered.

  Not so.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
