I always was sooo keen to write something nobody needs.  ;-)

And as if the uselessness wasn't enough, I'm even cross-posting this
message to chicken-hackers!

Here another egg for the coop:

Why?  Because there is some ongoing effort to drop srfi-1 from CHICKEN
core and I already went to the hassle to do most of the eggification
labor for an unrelated reason.


* There needs to be at least one more version because we need to drop
the "egg-" prefix.

* @Mario: how should we list this?  Right now nobody wants to know about
it, except for those working on dropping srfi-1 from core.

* This comes under the name of "srfi-1" but installs as "egg-srfi-1".
chicken-install naturally handles this when called from within the
directory.  No idea how badly it might break when it downloads "srfi-1"
but does not find a "srfi-1.meta" inside the tarball.

* @Mario: I tried it under the intended name "srfi-1".  This kills
salmonella during install:

Error: string buffer full: #<output port "(string)">

* When installed under the name of "srfi-1" it installs but does not
work (and requires re-installation of chicken to fix):

#;1> (use srfi-1)
; loading /home/u/build/test//lib/chicken/8/ ...
; loading /home/u/build/test//lib/chicken/8/ ...
; loading library srfi-1 ...
#;2> (xcons 1 2)

Error: unbound variable: srfi-1#xcons

((Sure it works under the name "egg-srfi-1".))
