My point was to introduce a set of primitives that can be built on the
top of R5RS or whatever.  If you want to run an iScheme code on other
systems, you can still do that by implementing the iScheme primitives
using the standard Scheme primitives, right? (at least in principle)

Probably we should provide Scheme code that implements iScheme.  That
way we can obtain both portability and efficiency.  Isn't it a good idea?
