As long as we're speculating, how about Elk? Most of the low level
unix interface is already there. A generational, incremental garbage
collector which works with C extensions. No compiler or module system,
though. Starts up really fast.
What about bigloo? Can compile to C, has a module system. One of the
fastest free scheme compilers.
