Pro: if your code works when using r6rs modules (in Guile), then it should
work on any r6rs-conforming implementation.
Con: (@ (guile) cond) != (@ (rnrs base) cond), which can be surprising.
Con: ‘I know this usage isn't universally portable, but I'll cross that
bridge when needed. All the Scheme I care about do have this extension.
If a Scheme doesn't have this extension, I'll just patch that Scheme
(free software for the win!)’
