By "business oriented code" I meant "business logic", ie. the actual
low level and specialized part of the program. For instance I do system
programming and cannot do it in scheme (whatever the implementation),
although scheme is perfect to control the higher levels of abstraction or
interaction with the user.

"business oriented code" sounds indeed dreadful. I need some vacation
(in an English speaking country for instance). :)
