From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A macro system for Scheme by R. Kent Dybvig
     .  It is superior to the low-level system
     described in the Revised^4 Report ({R4RS).  Pattern variables
     are ordinary identifiers with essentially the same status as
     lexical variable names and macro keywords.  The syntax
     is modified to recognise and handle references to pattern
     variables.  Version 2.1 works with Chez Scheme and the
     Macintosh port runs under MacGambit 2.0
