  I think the proper question is "What's Scheme all about then?".

  With distinct function and variable namespaces, you don't need to
  create the kind of hellish environment where you never know what a
  function does that Scheme has invented for itself.

  Please note that you were not allowed to do what you just did if you
  also want to have a conforming ANSI Common Lisp program.

  Solution to U.S. Presidential Election Crisis 2000:
    Let Texas secede from the Union and elect George W. Bush their
    very first President.  All parties, states would rejoice.
