Okay.  Next version:

Chicken combines an optimising Scheme compiler with a reasonably
fast interpreter.  It supports most of R5RS and the important SRFIs.
The compiler generates portable C code and supports tail recursion,
first-class continuations, and lightweight threads, and the interface to
and from C code is easy to use.  The interpreter allows interactive use,
fast prototyping, debugging, and scripting.  Extensive documentation
is supplied.  The active and helpful Chicken community fixes bugs,
provides support, and has contributed hundreds of Chicken libraries that
make the programmer's task easier.

I don't know.
