Hi Wolfgang,

> gensym seems to be thrown out of r6rs. Is there a standardized equivalent?

The function gensym was not part of R5RS either.
If you *really* wan't to use it, you could import gensym or
string->uninterned-symbol from PLT's "scheme" language.

But if you intend to use it to write macros, you ought
to look into the syntax-case macro system instead.
