No.  There are the beginnings of a long-term effort to make scsh more
portable as a library.  The implementation of SRE in scsh is currently
a f****ng nightmare, so a re-implementation is also very much in
order.  (IMHO, the design also has significant weaknesses; I much
prefer the bindings Richard Kelsey did for Scheme 48, which are also
*much* easier to implement.)

I am totally interested in such a thing :-)
