I disagree with that from practical experience. Moreover, SRFI 7 gives you conditional access to the rest. The "single name" (several in the next revision) is a central aspect of the SRFI, I'd say.

A Scheme implementation might very well say: "We provide a special executable called "scheme-pro-xl" which supports waffled gadgets and giffled widgets with the command-line syntax specified in SRFI 22." -- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
