Is this thing a threadless repl server?
if so, i suggest that the code be separated and can be easily
integrated into other project.

the guile-scsh badly needs such a feature.

It's not exactly threadless. There is one server thread that waits for clients, and for each client there is one thread that waits for user input. The difference is that the client REPL is executed in the main thread, sans reading user input. I use my own coroutine and scheduler modules to do it in guile-2d. I call it the "cooperative REPL".

I agree that it would be nice to extract this into something that more people could use. The modules in question are (2d coroutine), (2d agenda), and (2d repl coop-repl).
