Most interesting, thanks for these ideas and tips.

The original scheme version converted true to #t, false to #f, and null to (void) which turns into the #<void> literal. These break in arc because #f isn't nil, and #<void> can't even be read by the reader. So I think I have to take a comprehensive look at mzscheme's syntax at some point and make sure that anything scheme code can emit can be read and understood by the arc compiler.

Oh, do you mean that if, for example, Arc treated #t as a synonym for t, then we wouldn't have to do that conversion ourselves manually?
