There is no need to ugh about that. Scheme has proved itself to be very
suitable to this thing. Also, since Guile has already been mentioned,
one goal of the Guile project is that all Guile-extensible programs
will be extensible in any language Guile has bindings for, as well as
Guile's own Scheme dialect.
