Overview
--------

This package is a distribution of libraries for R6RS Scheme
implementations. In the paper:

"Keyword and Optional Arguments in PLT Scheme". Matthew
Flatt and Eli Barzilay. 2009 Workshop on Scheme and
Functional Programming.

the authors discuss ways to provide functions and macros
with a mix of fixed and optional arguments to better
organise abstractions. This package humbly proposes an
alternative for R6RS implementations, without the use of
"keywords" as disjoint type of values.

The library has no dependencies and it supports Ikarus,
Larceny, Mosh, Petite Chez, PLT Scheme, Vicare and Ypsilon.

Detailed informations on usage are in the README file.
