Honestly, this has nothing to do with Scheme.  There are *lots* of  
languages out there that have the abstraction tools available to get  
rid of the boring junk; Haskell, ML, Scheme, LISP, etc.  In a perfect  
world, I'd like to create a rallying cry for *all* proponents of  
functional programming.

"We Hate Boilerplate!"

... or something like that.
