Seeing how much trouble you seem to have getting from your C rut to
elisp's, I have a hard time understanding why you consider the C rut as
being wide and shallow.

I still haven't heard from a Lisp hacker who found it difficult to switch to
C or Java (painful, yes of course, but not difficult, except maybe for manual
memory management), so I'd say that Lisp's rut is rather shallow indeed.
