[plt-scheme] dots

I've experimented with writing Scheme interpreters, and I once added  
dot support at the reader level, similar to quote:

'a  --> (quote a)
a.b --> (dot a 'b)

Different types could implement the dot lookup however they wanted.   
Maybe it's just a slippery slope to syntax hell, or maybe it's worth  
it.  I had to pick another character for improper lists, but that was  
fine with me.

request.url.path vs. (url-path (request-url request)) ?

No, I don't want to go back to Python.
