I've been working on my own mod_guile for a while now.  You can write
handlers in scheme that take a smobified request_rec as an argument. 
Standard out is a port that uses ap_rwrite and friends.  Right now there
are two hard-coded content handlers, scheme and "gbrl".   Scheme code is
evaluated with gh_eval_file_with_catch.  Not nearly done, but it is

I'd like to hear your ideas and what direction you were headed.

I have a good deal of brl ported to guile, except I'm using "#>" for "]"
and "<#" for "[".  Just one read-hash-extend and you don't have to patch
guile!  The [ and ] are a *lot* cleaner looking though. :(  The sql-xxx
functions are only using guile-pg.  It would really be nice if we had a
common api for all the databases, like odbc or jdbc.

I'm *very* interested!
