    It will not mean that Elisp programs will need to be rewritten in
    Scheme, or even that Emacs will necessarily support extensions written
    in Scheme

Supporting Emacs extensions written in Scheme is part of the goal I
had in mind when I proposed this.  That's the tangible benefit that we
would get from Scheme support.  If all Scheme does is serve as a platform
for Emacs Lisp, it is no real advance.

It is ok if it is necessary to write these extensions in a slightly
unusual style to get them to interoperate properly with Emacs Lisp
programs.  For instance, maybe it would require using special
functions to test for Elisp nil.
