Cool! I'm jealous you even have that opportunity!

I use CHICKEN a lot for my own webapps and the main problem I've found
in using older versions of CHICKEN is in using eggs. You may want to
be very careful to keep the source around for each version of the eggs
you use in case an egg gets updated to be incompatible with the
CHICKEN version you are on and you may not be able to get the old
version after that. (Or maybe I missed a way to use chicken-install to
get old versions and their old dependencies?) You may also not want to
always be on the latest versions of eggs when setting up new
environments which would mean being careful about managing your own
versions of eggs; ie keep dev and production environments in sync
without always updating the production environment.
