Developing code under Chicken is fairly straightforward; developing
code under Stalin is painful in the extreme.  It therefore is plausible
to have a Stalin-compatible library for Chicken that allows one to
develop code that Stalin can handle after it is fully debugged under
Chicken.  You can then gain the advantages of Stalin's massive
optimizations to gain execution speed.

BTW, has anyone gotten stalin to work lately? I ran my 512mb Athlon
for the whole night and was not able to compile stalin 0.11 (gcc 4.1.2).
