Hi Bil,
thanks for the quick response.

The problem that I'm facing is that write/ format ~S doesn't wrap lists
around (list ..),
thus I cannot use for serialize/deserialize. (my objective is saving/loading

And the example I gave about the namespace is really simple.
In my situation I'm doing things like loading a whole file into a separate
Like this example from the documentation

(define *lib*
   (let ()
       (with-let (unlet)
(load "any-library.scm" (curlet))
;; etc..

How could I "write" something that comes from *lib* that is eval'able like
the object->string :readable does?
(Practically, picture that there is "make-state" function in *lib* that
returns a curlet, like we were discussing in the previous email,
and you need to serialize/deserialize this state object)

I realize that I might be pushing the language limits like this, but I hope
there is a solution.
