I will try to do that...
1- We are planning to add aggregate types in Scheme, i.e. records.
2- Up to now, the only place, in the R6Rs, where we might use aggregate
types is for modeling exceptions (or conditions if you prefer).
If it turns out that the "official" aggregate types (records) that we
are up to add are not powerful enough to model exceptions it's because
our design is bad. It can be the design of the aggregate types or the
design of exceptions.
