The name is gold (well, actually Steel, but...)

I love the idea as I'd love to be able to do systems programming in Scheme.

I've actually been playing with Loko scheme lately which is really cool and
designed for bare metal.
There are some really cool things going on there, such as Valand, an
experimental wayland-like
compositor written purely in Scheme (see the dev branch if you're
interested). But its still garbage

Another cool example of what maybe counts as a systems lisp/scheme is the
xtlang from extempore,
designed to allow for the low-level bit fiddling and performance
requirements of per-sample DSP.

If this initiative takes off I'd like to offer my help however I could
contribute :)
