Between this list, scheme-implementors, and private remarks, no
implementer has said anything strongly negative about the draft that
I have seen; indeed, everyone who has spoken at all has said they
will implement R7RS-small eventually.  Objections have been made to
particular points, notably the incompatibility between R5RS and R6RS
around returning zero values rather than an undefined value from
standard procedures.  I am attempting to craft a proposal to smooth over
this discrepancy.

        they only obey the laws of physics.  --Unknown
