#703: Restructure core libraries
 Reporter:  felix           |       Owner:       
     Type:  defect          |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  major           |   Milestone:       
Component:  core libraries  |     Version:  4.7.x
 Keywords:                  |  
 The current structure of the libraries is completely arbitrary and both
 annoyingly impractical and inconsistent. `identity` doesn't belong into
 `data-structures` and why is `write-line` in `extras` and not in `ports`.
 The list goes on like this.

 The libraries should be restructured fundamentally. To make this
 backwards-compatible, we could provide wrapper modules (or extensions)
 that provide the old structure but internally map to the new one. This
 would also be the opportunity to give more meaningful names to the SRFI
 libraries (with the `srfi-XXX` identifiers being just aliases).
