(Oops -- should've sent this to the list, not just Marc.)
I sent an email to the SSAX mailing list and got the following
response from Oleg Kiselyov, the author:
"I guess more like `hands off'... I try to keep the core SSAX
relatively portable. [...] It's up to the developers of a particular
Scheme system and its community to decide how to treat SSAX."
I take that to mean that Snow people should handle the port...
> I agree fully.
