Re: () as an expression

 From article <5413@tekcrl.LABS.TEK.COM>, by kend@tekchips.LABS.TEK.COM (Ken Dickey):

This leads to another point: I think we need a definitive answer on
whether #f == ().  In my Scheme, #f and () are two different entities. 
I like this because in my mind, #f != ().  #f is boolean, () is an empty

So what say you about:
(BOOLEAN? '())
(NULL? '())
(EQ? '() #f)
