In that case, I guess I need to implement it ...

Is there a recommended reference implementation?
IIRC mathematically (log a b) is (/ (log a) (log b)),
but that might not provide the best accuracy.

I recall there is a library implementation effort with
suggested or reference implementations of various
functions and macros.  Is there or should there be a
link to this from the R7RS specification?  Or perhaps
from scheme-reports.org?
