Is there a consensus on how deeply to integrate R7RS into Chicken? It seems mostly R7RS compliant as it stands. Are there any technical or ideological blockers to basing core Chicken on R7RS-small in the future?

The main point of divergence seems to be the native module system, which offers a superset of the features of the R7RS library system. The common features look more or less compatible, and this impression is reinforced by the fact that you already have a useful r7rs egg.
