Right.  A time-compat.<implementation>.sls file supplies a time macro which 
may be a "dummy", depending on <implementation>.  The R6RS test suite code 
which runs on all implementations includes "the" time-compat.sls library, 
uses the time macro, and its code does not change.

I think we are "agreeing loudly" here using different words.  Right?
