Not wanting to take anything away from PLT 2jvm efforts (go PLT!), doesn't
the bigloo scheme still have a java byte-code back-end?  I've never used it
(and the only time I've ever used bigloo was for the skribe text processor,
so ymmv).  BTW, it looks like Manuel Serano is doing interesting things with
scheme->javascript now: see Hop.
