Perhaps not my first born, but hopefully her children will...

I'm seriously contemplating porting scsh to mzscheme (the Scheme implementation
from the PLT group at Rice)...I've talked a bit with Shriram about this and
have done some preliminary poking. While I'm not exactly thrilled over the
idea of reimplementing scsh, it seems my only option if I want to get decent
performance (as well as a system that will run on an Alpha). Does anyone
(including Olin & Brian) have any tips for this? Would it be more
realistic to build my own implementation of PreScheme that is portable than
it would be to add scsh to mzscheme?
