Not a hindrance, just an annoyance, IMHO.  Maybe a reasonable compromise
would be to add an --r6rs switch, to add these extensions, as well as
turn on any R6RS-compatiblity reader options, so the script being
executed can use the R6RS syntax we already support, even when it is
disabled by default (cf. my latest patch). On the other hand, these
extensions are not part of R6RS and orthogonal to whether the script to
be run uses R6RS syntax incompatible with the default reader options.
