Yes, I have been porting both early SRFIs and later SRFIs, and I have
noticed that it's the earlier SRFIs that are more likely to not to have
tests, so hopefully I don't need to worry about later SRFIs so much.

However, I have run in to situations where even later SRFIs do not test
their implementations completely, and bugs have slipped through because
of that.
