You almost convinced me :) It was good.
Unfortunately those pieces are *hidden* from real-world because of 
And this complexity is not related with advanced macrology or
with coroutines ... (=stem cells). It is related to the fact that
someone who tries to answer the question "What is this Scheme ?" sees 

Wikipedia:Scheme (programming language)
Current implementations include: Bigloo, Chez Scheme, Chicken, Gambit, 
Gauche, Guile, Ikarus, JScheme, Kawa, Larceny, MIT/GNU Scheme, Mosh, PLT 
Scheme, Pvts, RScheme, Scheme 48, SCM, SISC, Stalin, STk, STklos, 
TinyScheme, Ypsilon.

So, where is this stem with cells ?
