I second the motion.  I am currently designing ELSIE (the "Embedded Lisp
[Scheme] Interpreter, `ELSIE'"), and I'd rather not have to make
arbitrary decisions about what SET! returns (for instance).  (Actually,
set! is a bad example, since I believe it should return the new value,
which I guess I'm proposing for R4RS, but you get the idea.)
