Sorry, I should have made that clear, thanks for pointing it out.

I was actually hoping someone might point to better comparisons, since 
I'm sure I've seen some but I couldn't find them in a brief search.

I tend to find little cheat-sheety things like the ones I linked to 
useful when coming up to speed on a language, particularly when you have 
some basic familiarity with it or its kind already.  But you do have to 
take almost everything you read on the web about Scheme with large 
vat-grown crystals of salt, since the deep dark secret of R5RS Scheme is 
that it's really a kind of Rorschach test.
