Exactly.

As the project got factored into more and more libraries, it got almost
impossible to keep the egg dependencies updated by hand. Mistakes and
omissions slipped in all the time. I wrote an R7RS import groveler to
help, but it was still a burden.

The .egg file can be fixed manually with sufficient effort, but the
problem should really be solved in Chicken's tooling; something like
"automake" or "makedepend" is needed for Scheme code. We talked about
that on chicken-users in this thread:
https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-users/2022-11/msg00017.html
We didn't arrive at a definitive solution. The csm egg got closest.
Anyone wishing to pursue this earns my praise.

FWIW, here's my groveler:

Several others have written similar code.l

Awesome. Thank you very much for being the third contributor to srfi-tools.
