Well, as far as I understood by briefly reading the status report and
some updates there will be a standard kernel and support libraries.
The support libraries are under review in the SRFI process and the
standard kernel is R5RS with some modifications. And I imagine for a
scheme implementation to be R6RS compliant will have to implement the
kernel and support the libraries, much like in Java as far as I
remember, right?

Is PLT Team already thinking on moving the implementation to R6RS
slowly? Or are you waiting everything to be decided? What will most
probably happen to the current module system?
