[gambit-list] The two package systems

The gambit wiki lists two package systems, Snow and Blackhole.

Is either of them preferred in some sense?  Can they be used together?

The show installation guide mentions a generic snow and shows for 
specific Scheme implementations.  On the "links" page it mentions that a 
gambit-specific implementation is a work in progress.  

In the HOST section of the packages page, there's a host-gambit package.  
Is it the one that's a work in progress?  Or has the work progressed to 
usability by now.

So ... which Snow implementation do you recommend for use?

And is there anything else I should know before I start?
