Actually where would you find a R2RS Scheme implementation these
I'm with Marijn on this one. It really should be that 80% of people
must support a feature for it to be in the core spec. For libraries
the threshold is 0% because libraries are not imposed on users... the
users can choose whichever suits their needs. Anyway, that's the
model I have in mind.
