Actually i like python function application syntax :
    f(arg1, arg2, *args, **kwargs)
where args is a list, and kwargs is a dictionary of keyword arguments.
Function definition in python can have similar syntax:
    def f(arg1, arg2, *args, **kwargs):
I understand that this idea is not very applicable to scheme and would 
like to know all reasons for this.
