All interpreters listed on the front page are either bytecode
interpreters or closure compilers. (If I'm not mistaken, Gambit and
Chicken's interpreters use the latter technique.)

The descriptions could surely be improved,but there's not much space on
the front page. I've tried to leave out information that can be inferred
from context.

It would be great if https://get.scheme.org/ got a detailed description
of each implementation.
