Another Scheme, woohoo!  :-)  Applied!

I applied the patch, but I added a FIXME about the fact that it’s
“yogurt software” as Ricardo says: its “source” includes C files
generated by itself, which are obviously not source code.  We try to
avoid that, but OTOH we already have the same problem for several
compilers, for instance MIT/GNU Scheme.

>From the README, previous versions were apparently bootstrapped using a
separate Scheme->C compiler.  We could perhaps fix the problem by
building one of these older versions of Stalin, and using it to build
the latest one.  Would you like to give it a try?  (On this topic, don’t
miss <>.)

Anyway, thanks for the patch!
