That's why I said we can just drop all but the imperative layer for
consideration for R6RS, if that's what everybody wants.  The nice
thing about it is that it isn't monolithic, after all.

I agree there may be efficiency considerations, but how about
addressing them with SRFI 68?  (I have a fairly specific idea on how
to do that.)  After all, it's neither final nor finished yet.
