[plt-scheme] Are new Schemers supposed to be reading SRFIs?

I subscribe to the PLaneT RSS feed.  Everytime a new library is posted
it appears in my blog reader, and I spent 5 mins browsing the
docs/code to find out what it does.  This way I always have a vague
idea if there is something out there that does what I want.  I also
browse the collects directory in PLT Scheme for similar reasons.

If you have to choose between a SRFI and a PLT implementation (e.g.
list.ss) it is likely that the PLT implementation is better optimised
for PLT Scheme.
