None of the examples at the end of the SRFI are alleged
to perform binary i/o. The ones that appear to perform
binary i/o use the procedures that, according to you,
were not intended for binary i/o.
What I need is a clear statement of exactly how one is
supposed to perform binary i/o, especially binary i/o
mixed with textual i/o (which is alleged to be a feature
of that SRFI), in spite of the fact that the procedures
that I thought were supposed to perform binary i/o do not
actually do so.
