For features that are not defined in any SRFI, why not build on other
schemers' experience rather than write whole new interfaces?  Bigloo,
for instance, already has clean interfaces for various things including
bit manipulation, dates, object serialization, fair threads (à la GNU
Pth), parsing, etc.  It would also greatly contribute to portability
among Scheme interpreters and compilers.

My two cents.
