All these features are available in other schemes because their scheme
side supports them.  Geiser always relies on the running scheme to
obtain the information.  With Chez it might the case that they're not
implemented yet on the scheme side, or also that they're not provided by
Chez (e.g., it might well be the case that Chez has not enough built-in
reflection capabilities to tell you the parameter list of a procedure,
or extract a docstring).  I didn't implement Chez support and i'm not
sure about what's lacking here: maybe the contributors to that code
could chime in here (ecraven is sometimes in irc too)...
