I ran into this last night, and figured it out, but it is definitely
weird for new users (although I guess people deal with it in Perl, as
well, with require, use, etc...).  Would be really cool if it were a
bit more consistent.  I guess that's a fairly tall order, though.

So, for those in the know, what will it take to get some 'standard
lib' kinds of things for scheme?  Are 'official' people working on
this?  Or does someone just need to do a really nice implementation of
it, and create a de-facto standard?
