The point is not that tools don't exist, but that the current way of
doing things is a mess. Why is there syntax->list and stx->list? Why
aren't the prefixes (stx and syntax) the same? Why are all the tools
scattered around different parts of the docs? It is *really* confusing
trying to read, understand, and remember all of the different tools.
