Thanks, pushed.  It's hard to oversee the consequences, if any.
I expected this to cause a whole lot of eggs that previously compiled
without warnings will now start compiling with warnings ("re-importing
already imported identifier"), but for some odd reason it doesn't do
that!  Any idea why?

Is it because it knows it's the exact same identifier, or is it just
some sort of weirdness in how core's "fake" modules are handled?
What will happen when SRFI-13 is pulled out of core?

Maybe we should consider deprecating and eventually dropping the
version in the "chicken" module to avoid these problems?
Unfortunately, it's being used in library.scm several times.
