Comment (by sjamaan):

 It seems to me we have several ways to do this.

 We can document this, so that the user will know to pass in `'foo#bar` as
 the record name.

 We could also strip the prefix when comparing, so that **any** `bar` is
 accepted.  That means it will also accept a bar from a completely
 different module, which might not be desirable (but it's more consistent
 with the pre-5 version).

 Finally, we could make it syntax somehow (or add a syntax for getting a
 namespaced record name) and read out ##sys#current-module.

 I prefer simply documenting the current behaviour, because `(chicken
 memory representation)` is a relatively low-level module already anyway.
