I must admit, I also found this statement rather odd.

It also seems to me that once you strike Schemes with no recent history
of being updated *at all* from the list of implementations, the majority
of implementations *did* adopt R6RS, so I'm not sure what "disastrous"
means, either.

Or we could put SIOD, T, Rabbit, and Oaklisp on the list, and talk about
how poor adoption of R5RS was.  :-)
