Some of you may remember the guile-emacs project I started on years

Great ! i'd really love to have a scheme-emacs.
You might find JEmacs (http://jemacs.sf.net) interesting.
It's different and more radical approach than Ken's. It is also
a very unfinished, because nobody is spending much time on it.
JEmacs is part of the multi-languge Kawa environment
(http://www.gnu.org/sofwtare/kawa/). Both Scheme and Emacs Lisp
(and other languages) can co-exist, and both can be compiled to
Java bytecodes. JEmacs can use multiple GUI backends, currently
Swing and SWT.
Unfortuntely, neither I nor anyone else is spending much time on
JEmacs, so it's never gotten to the "actually usable" stage, and
there is probably some "bit-rotting". However, I have started doing
some *very* interesting GUI programming with Kawa, which looks like
it will also benefit JEmacs.
