Yes, the money is going to be a problem :)

I was assuming the PLT server wouldn't be enough, I
was wondering more about PLT in combination with
something else.

I will have to build that prototype, but since I know
close to nothing about the language, that may take
some time.

Like what for example? REPL?

Ala mod_lisp, or fastCGI? Is that what you mean?
