Currently only SRFI-34 lacks documentation.  Personally I find it handy
to have complete, user-oriented SRFI documentation in the manual, but I
reckon that writing it is tedious.

Still, some sort of a transcription would be nice (though for SRFI-42,
for example, the second part of the abstract and the rationale don’t
belong in Guile’s manual), but having the code is nice too, so...
