Hi Marc et. al.,
  MJ Ray brought this project to my attention -- I think it's a great
idea!  I write a lot of Guile Scheme code, and I'd love to contribute
packages / ports / support / etc.
  One package I noticed (conspicuously) missing from the repository,
though, is Oleg Kiselyov's SSAX/SXML modules
(http://okmij.org/ftp/Scheme/SXML.html).  Might I suggest the creation
of an "XML" category to house it?  It's already been ported to, I
think, all of the Scheme platforms that Snow supports.  Full
disclosure: I develop and maintain two Scheme packages, SDOM
(http://www.nongnu.org/sdom/) and SCSS (http://www.nongnu.org/scss/),
respectively a DOM implementation and CSS parsing/query system, both
of which depend on SXML and which I'd love to see included in Snow at
some point.  Independently of anything I'm doing, though, I think XML
parsing is a pretty important component of modern systems
interoperability, and I hope there's a place for it in Snow.
