This is going to be summer work for me.

I've started at the problem.  There's a undocumented "embedded" mode
in WeScheme that lets you drive it from the outside, so that you can
manage your own content.  It's nowhere near done yet; as soon as I get
this dissertation document done, I can get back to making it actually

For example:


If you look at the source for test-control, you'll see that it
currently has a very minimal RPC to WeScheme going on.  What needs to
be done is collecting what other operations we need to drive
interactive tutorials besides just evaluation.
