As far as I can tell the imperative section of SRFI 68 goes beyond  
the requirements we agreed to in Boston.  It also refers to the  
stream layer (e.g. input-port-stream, set-input-port-stream!), so  
strictly speaking that section is not self contained.  I'm also  
concerned about backward compatibility (e.g. read-char seems to  
return an integer and the procedure eof-object? no longer exists).   
Could you make a specific self contained proposal that would address  
the requirements?
