Here's the abstract:

  This SRFI defines ASCII-only
  equivalents to many of the character
  procedures in standard Scheme plus a
  few extra ones.  Recent Scheme
  standards are based around Unicode but
  the significant syntactic elements in
  many file formats and network
  protocols are all ASCII.  Such
  low-level code can be faster and
  easier to understand with ASCII
