That reminds me. The ability for syntax-rules to pattern-match on
vectors was added between R4RS and R5RS, but I have never understood
the motivation for it. It makes it possible to create macros that
are invoked with unquoted #(...)s in them, but why would anyone
consider that superior to simple (...)s?
