[plt-scheme] SICM in DrScheme?

Unfortunately, there's no way to currently use scmutils from any scheme 
but MIT Scheme.  I think that someone (Rebecca Frankel?) was trying to 
port it at one time, but it was never finished.  You can have a look at 
this thread: 

The major difficulty is that the code has been written over a long 
period of time and has some idiosyncratic ways of doing things (for 
example the rolled-your-own object system predates CLOS by quite a 
bit), so it's not an easy fit for porting to another system.
