For one exotic datapoint: I do use Emacs as an editor (almost exclusively)
but never got the hang of Geiser. So I'm happy as a clam with Guile's
REPL in a plain & simple terminal.

Some people are heavily working on Emacs's LSP support (as I said, not
my thing), so I'd expect that giving Guile a good LSP support too might
be a viable path to support (yuck [1]) vscode.


[1] Sorry, I just can't suppress that completely, watching as I
   do how Microsoft is converting software development into Yet
   Another Social Network (and vscode is part of this, as is
   Github or as LinkedIn tried -- and failed to be).

   I'm a political animal, sorry for that.
