I'd like to see:

   (require (srfi 1))

And maybe

   (require (all-from-except-exports-from (srfi 1) mzscheme))

to import all functions in (srfi 1) except those that conflict
with mzscheme.

The current convention where

   (lib "1.ss" "srfi")

exports everything, and

   (lib "list.ss" "srfi" "1")

exports all non-conflicting names, has in the past led
to quite a few questions.


   (lib "no-conflicts.ss" "srfi" "1")

were even better than "list.ss" ?
