It is not that I am totally against emacs, but I must confess that learning
the myriad of cryptic commands would seriously strain my patience. Mind you,
I am writing this on Mutt/Freeshell now, which is using emacs. As such, I
have to state that I have no trouble using the basic functionality of the
editor. It just should not be too cryptic..

Sublime Text 2 / REPL is working quite nicely. But of course, having
something like LightTable / well configured emacs system might be better. 

Btw, is there any chance to integrate Chicken into LightTable?

I have to see. I am not a computer scientist, but that does not mean I fail
to compile it. 

Thank you very much for this recommendation. 

All the best,
