Specifically, I've completed all of the steps given in the README, and I'm now trying to figure out how to deploy it.  It appears to me that I'll need to use Eclipse, in order to make use of the GWT resources that we installed as part of an earlier step.

It's tied to Eclipse and Google AppEngine.  You can load it into
Eclipse by "importing" it.  Do the following to import it into

1.  Choose "Import" from the File menu.

2.  Select the "General/File system" option.  Select the toplevel
WeScheme directory in the file chooser.  Finish the import.

3.  When you rebuild the project, you may need to "Quick Fix" to
correct library dependencies, since the project depends on a few
Google Appengine libraries that might not have loaded properly during
the import.
