Yep.  I enjoy it.  Not very good, though.

A smob of my own devising.  I've actually come quite a ways now.  I'm
in the hairy depths of properly implementing each function, some of
which take constants in C, and which I determined should take strings
in scheme, e.g. one may write (trav-planet-set-atmosphere planet
"Polluted") where in C one would write
trav_planet_set_atmosphere(planet, TRAV_PLANET_ATMOSPHERE_POLLUTED).
Looking back on it all, I'm really very glad that I did not decide to
use SWIG.  I'd be overriding so much stuff that I might as well be
doing it by hand, and I would have lost quite a bit of functionality.

It's a lot of work, but it is ever-so-slowly coming together.  Were I
not going on vacation later this week, I would expect to produce
travlib 0.4 by Friday.
