[plt-scheme] Is R6RS useless for PLT?

As the naming conventions in DrScheme suggest, we consider
our Module language the primary development vehicle. R6RS,
like R5RS, is supported and available. Bug reports and
feature requests are taken seriously. As Robby indicates,
R6RS is our bridge to other Scheme implementations and we
would like libraries to flow into our world. -- Matthias
