So the extraordinary compiler Stalin is sliding into obscurity, because
it remains stuck at r4rs, with nobody having done anything to bring it
Chicken Scheme can be talked into being r5rs, which is great, though
it's not obvious sometimes what needs to be done.
But r6rs has been out a while. I think we should create a "punchlist"
of to-do items, with the goal being to get r6rs compliance in the
not-too-distant future. With the version 4 macro system in place, this
shouldn't be too far off.
And yet, we have a quote from Felix Winkelmann from a couple years ago
saying it will never happen, and "R6RS must die".
Is this still the rule?
