Testing function arity

Description (last modified by cowan)

We would like a standard for checking function arity.

SRFI-102 proposes a way to check function arity:

Many Scheme systems provide mechanisms for inspecting the arity of a procedural value, making it a common feature, however there is no standard interface. As a result there is no portable way to observe the arity of a procedure.

Do we standardize it ?

This only makes sense in the context of a major overhaul of the type system within Scheme. While I think we should do *that*, I am less than sure that doing *this* without doing that makes any sense at all, except as a case of rampant featuritis.

No. Let WG2 handle it.

Ok, I agree to postpone this issue until a (dynamic) type system has been proposed.
