Not sure if it’s news to you but I recently stumbled upon Per Bothner’s
JEmacs, an Emacs implemented in Scheme (GNU Kawa) + Java + Elisp, where
Elisp has been added as a front-end to Kawa (and it can actually run
Elisp code like Towers of Hanoi unmodified, so there may be ideas to

See also this paper written in 2000:


  “My opinion is that Guile is not the best Scheme implementation to
  use for Emacs.”

  And then: “Using an optimizing compiler that compiles to bytecode is
  certainly going to be faster than Guile or Emacs's simple interpreter
  [...] However, there are many projects and companies working very hard
  on running Java bytecodes fast. [...]  Another approach is to use a
  traditional ‘ahead-of-time’ compiler (such as the Gcc-based Gcj)”.
