We use it quite successfully in LilyPond which runs on Macs, Windows
boxes, and various UNIX flavours.  Right now, we have about 1.3MByte
of Scheme code.  This is Guile 1.8.x, but we are already in the
process of migrating to 2.x.

OK, this is a different issue.  LilyPond binaries for Mac and Windows
are cross-compiled on a GNU/Linux box.

So people working on a forthcoming Scheme support in Emacs might have
a look at LilyPond.
