thanks, however i must be being slow &
i can't see how to write this.  i am wanting
something like the below r6rs (which works
in ikarus at least)

(library x
 (export ...)
 (import (only (rnrs) define lambda ...))

is there an 'empty' module (scheme/base was
the most minimal 'public' variant i could locate)
so that we can write:

(module x empty
  (require (only-in scheme/base define lambda ...)

or do i need to make a separate 'core' module?
i tried this as:

(module core scheme/base
  (provide define lambda ...))

(module x core

but using x get a "module: no #%module-begin
binding in the module's language" error.

i thought it might need to be:

(module core scheme/base
  (provide (only-out scheme/base define lambda ...)))

however only-out doesn't exist.
