Should work in this area start to take place, please let me know if I
can help in any way.

You appear to have left out the footnote.

I'd like to point out some info about the ITLA idea.  ITLA is not, at
it's core, tla specific -- it's a generic engine for making
interactive Scheme programs, both CLI and GUI.


Particularly the section "How it Would Work" which begins:

  * How it Would Work

    ITLA would be written as an "extensible shell".

    Most likely, especially since arch is a GNU project, in Guile.
    SCSH, MzScheme, and Systas Scheme are other possibilities.

    It's architecture would somewhat resemble Emacs' in the following
    way: [....]

The ITLA framework is one of the target applications for Pika Scheme
but it will be a long time before Pika is ready to start implementing
it.   There's no reason not to start on the framework earlier, using
Guile (and many good reasons to do so).
