I can submit a revision (no guess as to how long it will take to
appear).  SRFI-96 (and SLIB) will not be requiring the "environ"
behavior.  Although many useful Scheme programs have been written
using getenv; I have yet to see one which requires "environ".

Will an implementation having getenv but not environ be SRFI-98
compliant?  SRFI-98 would be a prerequisite for SRFI-96 only if the
answer to that question is yes.

 | Cool!
 | This is the first implementation of this srfi!

According to the table at the end of srfi-98, STklos preceeded SCM.
