Do you think PLT Scheme is less useful than Squeak? Or closer to the  
"standard" than Squeak? Technically speaking, RnRS is _not_ a  
standard; it's a language report that describes a family of  
programming languages or the core language. There actually is an ANSI/ 
IEEE standard, but it is so old nobody pays attention anymore. --
