I don't think I'm familiar enough to say.

I do know what the current situation with R6RS library files on Unixoids
and Windoze is: the names and directory structure of library files, not
their source-code contents, are not fully portable because different
R6RS systems do not implement the same method of finding them, and this
SRFI will fix that.
