Hi Matthew,

Thanks for your replies and fixes in SVN ;-)

Well. I only wanted regexp-match* (with #rx if it was possible) and  
pretty-print, so I thought about using R6RS and only importing those 2  
symbols that I needed so it would be portable. But, due to the trouble  
I would have converting mlists->lists (or vice-versa) for  
interoperability and printing (that file will generate stubs for some  
COM functions on the Scheme side), I think I'll follow your advice and  
just use #lang scheme.

Thanks for the help,
