Well, I think you have some interesting points here, but I'm not
entirely sure that I'm really into a Scheme that is a universal
computer language creator. I kind of like R5RS + syntax extensions.

But you may be interested in some of the earlier ideas for Guile. One
was a C-like syntax like the one you mentioned, called ctax. Another
is Thomas Bushnell's work to make a Python interpreter on top of

This might be an extensible idea -- working with something like GNU
Lightning or even the Guile VM. Anyways, if you're really
interestested, searching on Google for those keywords might be a good
starting point.

Me, I like parentheses.
