As our docs say again and again, plt provides tools for making Scheme- 
like languages.

The only question is why reports have to make it particularly  
difficult to port by implicitly or explicitly adding ambiguity. If,  
however, the reports aren't about portability, why do they exist at  
all? If we just wish to define a relationship between languages that  
use the word 'Scheme' to describe themselves, we could instead just  
have a workshop/conference where we meet once a year to exchange  
ideas. More productive, less argumentative
