The SRFIs are a step towards some standardization but I wouldn't hold my 
breath for a standard library implemented by all the major players. I 
use mzscheme because:

	1) It has what I need now
	2) It is being actively developed so it should have what I need in future
	3) Very serious commitment to quality from the PLT team
	4) Lots of source to learn from
	5) Very productive (and fun) development environment

Now if there was a real debugger...
