You can embed MzScheme into your application. See "Inside PLT MzScheme"
(at http://download.plt-scheme.org/doc/insidemz/insidemz.html and other
places) for more information.

More specifically for Mac OS X, use the "PLT_MzScheme" framework, which
is installed in "/Library/Frameworks" by the installer.

(I'll add the last bit of information to "Inside PLT MzScheme". When I
last revised that part of the manual, things were less simple under Mac
OS then they are now.)
