I am a volunteer on the SWIG project. I was planning to investigate
how well it would work to apply SWIG to the C API of the mindstorms
SDK as I believe that PLT is supported by SWIG (it is the MzScheme
engine, correct?) but I haven't looked into it yet. Even if I did
this, it would need a lot of help from people with PLT experience to
determine if the interface is helpful.

We made the decision *not* to use NBC/NXC... NBC is too low level. NXC
is not developed enough. The tool that was most interesting to us, the
debugger, was only available on Windows. Are school is a linux-only
