[plt-dev] Re: promoting unstable libraries

From: Ryan Culpepper (ryanc at ccs.neu.edu)

My proposals:

-- unstable/list --

The following should move:
   - list-prefix?
   - check-duplicate
I think they should go in scheme/list.

-- unstable/syntax --

The following should move:
   - define/with-syntax
   - with-syntax*
   - format-symbol
   - format-id
   - syntax-local-eval
   - internal-definition-context-apply

These could all go into scheme/base, since they're all related to  
other procedures already in scheme/base. Or (some/all) could go into a  
new library. Thoughts?
