Please check out my guile-numerics project on Savannah
(  It wraps most of the GNU
Scientific Library, FFTW and libsndfile through SWIG.  It also
includes some higher level functions to provide a simpler interface to
the math routines.  For numerical work, GSL and FFTW have a proven
track record and it would be foolish to duplicate much of that work.

What is still lacking, though, is a uniform interface for hiding the
low-level GSL interactions and presenting the user/programmer with a
consistent scheme interface.  Help with this is always welcome.
