For the record, Alexey Radul figured out that my implementation of
`get-environment-variables' won't actually work.  I was depending on a
variable that acts as a cache, not as the definitive source of the
values of all environment variables.  As far as I can tell, MIT Scheme
doesn't contain an appropriate primitive for this operation.

On the other hand, MIT Scheme already defines
`get-environment-variable' in a way that is compatible with this SRFI.
