Not my point.  There is no uniform incantation in pre-R6RS systems to load
a library from the REPL, which is where I do my testing.  Some systems
use `load`, some `require`, some `use`, some other things, and I have
never done the research to determine which uses what.  Since most of my
comparisons have been about core R5RS features, it hasn't really come up.
