This also happens to me sometimes.  Chez Scheme's define-record permits
you to override the constructor name, predicate name, and setter/accessor
prefix.  But I would go along with one that allowed you to get even
more specific about accessor and setter names.  It's rare, however,
that I want to override all of the names, so please let's not force it
to be all explicit or all implicit.
