  Well, I'm a python programmer, beginning to learn scheme - here's a

  I also write in rebol, 
    ( said to be highly influenced by scheme and lisp) 
  which has no exposure to either the OS or the window
  It does however, have good TCP/IP features, which I use for database
  access. In my little company, we have thought about writing a GUI
  'server' in either python or perl which would be the 'middle layer'
  between rebol and the OS/Window managers, and 'take orders' thru

  Any other thoughts on that? Similarly, could one use scheme
