Well in spite of my great admiration for this book, that was not what I was thinking of right now :-)
I'd just like some "real life examples" of things accomplished using the techniques described in the aforementioned chapter - e.g., did they use #lang reader, #lang s-exp syntax/module-reader, or did they create a custom #lang xxx...?
OK I admit, perhaps I'd just like to read through some "fleshed-out" versions of (e.g.) the examples given in the guide, to get some ideas, see how other people proceed with such a thing :-)
