Hello, everybody!

Some noteworthy things:

- The whole setup scheme has changed substantially. setup
  scripts are now normal Scheme build files, optionally using
  a Scheme version of `make'. Check out the manual, or look
  at some of the available eggs for examples. All eggs on the
  website have been updated accordingly.
- The new form `require-extension' should now be used instead
  of `require' or `require-for-syntax' (it figures out most
  things automatically)
- Daniel B. Faken requested a method of checking whether
  C code is currently running while being called from Scheme
  (or whether it's at "top-level", possibly calling Scheme),
  so I've added CHICKEN_is_running().
- There are some new eggs available:
  iconv - from Alejandro Forero Cuervo
  pmatch - from Category 5
  (many thanks!)
- There is a version of the well-known "gears" opengl example
  available here:
- The syntax-case module system should now work with separate
  compilation, but I haven't tested it overly much, yet. Any
  feedback is welcome.
