Makes sense, I know I'd hate to have to try to learn something new in
anything but my native language; however wonder if scheme's support of such
features may indirectly relegate it to academic obscurity, as I don't
suspect the commercial world has any room for languages which enables code
to be composed from an arbitrary collection of characters and languages, as
it would become essentially un-maintainable. (guess it depends on what the
goals for the language are)
