I think checking the feature list is useful interactively,
but can't think of a good use in programs apart from
What about loading alternative implementation of a feature,
such as falling back onto the reference implementation of a SRFI if the Scheme
you're using doesn't provide one? I actually think this would ease writing
libraries likes SLIB or Nausicaa that support multiple Scheme implementations
and have to Spackle the gaps in features between them.
Q. How many Prolog programmers does it take to change a lightbulb?
