Understood.  My motivation was mostly distribution-related: if I wanted
to distribute a PLT package with dependencies on SLIB code, then having
an "slib.plt" greatly simplifies cross-platform installation.

In absense of an "slib.plt", the documentation, support, and usability
costs would in most cases hit the threshold at which I decide not to use

(Actually, I no longer have an immediate need for SLIB, so this
packaging idea has been moved to the back burner.)
