Here's the abstract:

  This SRFI defines a standard
  command-line flag to get version
  information from a Scheme
  implementation.  The output is
  Line-oriented S-expressions which are
  easy to parse from Scheme, C, and
  shell scripts and can co-exist with
  non-S-expression output.  A standard
  vocabulary is defined; extensions are
  easy to make.
