Since I used/taught Scheme&Python, I would like to UNDERSTAND this

Does Steven suggest that one should seek for an amalgamate of the two
languages, or try to implement Python in Scheme, or what? 

Pyhon and Scheme are two different languages, based on different
philosophies. While I can understand (although I don't share, Matthias
will understand, nichts wahr?) the philosophy "Eine Sprache, eine Kirche",
I don't understand the motivation of people  interested in Scheme. 

Unless you *really* think that the future consists in making some stuff
adapted for the .NET platforms, and similar... 

Happy New Year.
