This goes well beyond updating the acknowledgments.  There is already
a half-story in place as a background -- and that's obviously
completely new text.  In addition, there are zero references to R6RS
inside the text proper -- whatever the number should be, I'd expect it
to be bigger than zero.  Finally, there was significant work on some
aspects that are completely ignored -- at least as far as citations
