Scheme is pretty good as an _abstract_ VM (as opposed to a concrete and
never will be ideal VM).  That's why I eventually settled on it for the
Askemos project.

IMHO the trick is to put the effort into serialiser/parser pairs mapping
from "lingua franka" to binary.  Same plattforms may negotiate on binary
formats, while plattform changes pay the cost of translation for
compatibility.  None is locked out.
