In the name of the scheme underground crew, I adapted the HTTP Monkey webserver (see with a (port 2003) metaserver.

You can send in full guile, scheme48, scheme interpreter executables with a loadfile (1 file full of server side code, See src/schemeclient.c and src/epoll.c (mk_epoll_add_meta_client 

I uploaded a tarball here of the full server:

Perhaps 0wl means a GUI toolkit that is mostly written in Scheme,
instead of mostly a wrapper to libraries written in some other language.
That would allow the toolkit to be more Schemey. It could have a
"presentation layer" that renders to HTML/Js/websockets, to make an app
available over the web.

Is that it? There's certainly a place for that kind of experimentation
within the broader Guile project; probably not in the Guile repo itself,
but who knows?

"Widgets", in Self.
