Interesting question though: if you had to do it again, would you still consider Scheme, or would you rather go for Python....

Yes, that's an intriguing question. I'm not sure, really. The # hack could also have been done in Python, by requiring parentheses, I guess. I do wonder how what the impact on performance would have been. Python objects are more heavyweight than SCMs, and the Garbage Collection opened a lot of possibilities in developing Lily.
