Yes, although it's lexically scoped, and seems to have one slot for
values (i.e., a symbol has a value, not a value and a function value).
It also has property lists and things.  So it's probably best
described as an updated elisp, informed by such things as scheme.

drscheme and mzscheme are basically the same, I think.  It's just that
drscheme has a big environment (nice editor, etc.), especially
suitable for learning.
