Common Lisp is extremely complicated and ugly.  When I wrote GNU Emacs
I had just finished implementing Common Lisp, and I did not like it
much.  It would bloat Emacs terribly, and documenting it would be hard

Scheme is elegant, and it is a better direction to move in.

Since we have our own Scheme implementation, we should use that one.
If it has a serious disadvantage, we should do something about that.
There are various things that might be right to do, but simply
disregarding it in the case of Emacs cannot be right.
