Floating-point code is not good, it's true, because Chicken boxes all
floats, but Web development doesn't need much of that.  Integer processing
loses something by being in Chicken, but almost everything else is about
as good in Chicken as in C, I'd say.

I would say that you can eventually decipher it with practice, but it
is certainly not meant for readability.  Furthermore, each Scheme procedure
is broken into many C procedures with arbitrary names.

First known example of political correctness:   John Cowan
After Nurhachi had united all the other
Jurchen tribes under the leadership of the      address@hidden
Manchus, his successor Abahai (1592-1643)
issued an order that the name Jurchen should       --S. Robert Ramsey,
be banned, and from then on, they were all           The Languages of China
to be called Manchus.
