A discussion has been raised on comp.lang.scheme regarding a simple
raytracer and the performance it poses in various schemes. In this,
Gauche an Racket outperform Chicken, and Racket does so
resoundingly. To be frank, it looks rather troubling for Chicken.

I had a go at looking at what Chicken was spending its time on and it
appeared that it becomes mired in a tar pit of garbage collection
tagging. Can someone else with a little more understanding shed some
light on this?
