Hi John.

Thanks for your answers.

Oh, I will be more patient :-)
BTW: Bootstrapping the git version from pre6 worked very well.

Good to know.
I was looking at 'visit' from the syntax-case egg and thought this could
be a good alternative to "alexpander".
I use a Chicken-compiled alexpander to get rid of syntax-rules when compiling
some Scheme projects (with non-Chicken compilers).
(Sometimes, alexpander generates hard to read code; but now I know
that the old Chicken egg won't help me here.)
