I am usually quite far away from the metal and how things work on the bits level, however, if there was a Guile dialect, or Scheme dialect, which has similar feel, or maybe can even use Guile libraries, I would find that interesting. There is probably a lot to learn for me in that area.

I began implementing a bitboard, dreaming about writing a whole chess engine once and the clever tricks one can use on the bits level were interesting. Maybe such a thing could also be done in a better way using a Scheme close to the metal.

I'd love to see something like the above happen.  I'd love to help make
it happen.  So this is more of a call to arms than anything else.

Can we have a "systems lisp"?  Can we do better than Rust?  Let's put
some interesting things on that compiler tower of ours!
