Summary: Add write-string procedure to (scheme base)
For binary-ports there are the procedures write-u8 and write-bytevector. However, for textual ports there is only write-char. This proposal requests the addition of write-string. It may be argued that display already provides this, however it is in a library that is optional. Strings written with write-string are not enclosed in double quotes, and no characters are escaped within those strings. Change display procedure for strings to say that they are written as if by write-string.
