Exactly. This is what Scheme needs :) We can't decide which implementation is the Right One (TM) and many of us don't want to. A large canonical collection of practical libraries is the best way for Scheme to draw new people in and lose its reputation as a non-portable language. And the best way to ease the implementation debates inside the community as well.
