I suggested to Alex (who wrote chibi-sxml) to manually unroll the
optional arguments parsing for that library and he said it's fine. The
patch has now been mainlined:
https://github.com/ashinn/chibi-scheme/commit/561fc1bae083f98e02a5e696c5be13c9f4d0c4bd
If we upgrade the copy in the srfi-tools source tree, that solves the
immediate problem.
