The major problem with SLIB is that it imposes a packaging approach
which does not port well to, say, batch-compiled systems such as
Bigloo and Gambit-C.
Here is generally a big problem with the usability of Scheme: How do I
ship a piece of Scheme code and have it install under multiple Scheme
implementations? At least, all major C compilers are batch compilers
and have pretty much isomorphic (read: "make"-customizable)
Admittedly, this problem is a hard one to solve.
