Oh, my dear... I woke-up the Guardian of the Temple!... 

I think that statistically, YES, this list is less about problem
solving -- in this context: rule based systems -- than some forum dealing
with computer logic. I am the last to suggest that Scheme is unsuitable,
or whatever, but, frankly, not many issues related to the raised question
have been treated here. Scheme has so many different facettes... 

Did I say something harmful? Do I really deserve the death penalty?
