I'd love to see an practical Scheme book make it to the bookshelves if  
for no other reason than to be able to point my friends and co-workers  
at it.

The Pragmatic Programmers recently published a book on Clojure and  
O'Reilly has a CL book on the way. It seems to me there'd be interest  
in PLT Scheme, too, since mainstream programming culture is (very)  
slowly waking from their Java-Java-Java-Java coma.
