I am already using Scheme for extracting my students' grades (or
points or how do you call it) from colon-seperated text files and
generating nice TeX tables from them (although I haven't ported my
scripts to Guile yet).  Scheme is better suited for this kind of work
than most people think.

And hey, I forgot to mention another goodie in my previous post: I
have a simple HTTP server in pure Guile Scheme which can handle GET
requests and `servlets' written in Scheme.
