Great ! i'd really love to have a scheme-emacs.

You might find JEmacs ( 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
(  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.
