Yes, that's right. I was unclear. I am intending to come up with a
language that I can compile to C, to implement VM instructions. I
meant I would compile something to C, not from it to machine code.

Just to clarify, it probably won't be a subset of Scheme (although one
could compile a subset of Scheme to this language). I was thinking of
something more like register transfer language, so the compiler will
be very simple.
