I don't currently have plans to work on this problem. The big issue is that Racket structs are what's called "generative", meaning that each time you execute a struct declaration, you get a different struct type. Thus it's not at all clear what the right type should be for your `make-me-a-struct` function, and type systems that do allow this sort of thing (such as ML) would reject this particular use. Can you say more about the specific issue you're having? There might be a different way around it. Sam _________________________ Racket Developers list: http://lists.racket-lang.org/dev
