[Chicken-users] syntactically completeness / consistency

With the most recent commits (4.4.4), chicken is now consistent in the
way core forms are handled. There are no hard-coded special forms and
everything can be redefined, reexported and modified on import. Syntax
may now also expand into module forms (if at toplevel, local or nested
modules are still not available and not strictly necessary).

So, the transition to hygienic macros and a real module system is
hereby complete, not taking into account the bugs that will still lurk
everywhere and the low performance of the expander, which will be
worked on.

Thanks to everybody for putting up with the disruptive and painful
migration work and for all the help.
