There are several prolog-like systems implemented in scheme, some with 
the traditional prolog syntax and some, like schelog with a more schemish
syntax. One of the nice thing about the later family: one can mix prolog
style and scheme style coding, so you can write  'server-is-running? in
scheme and leave the decission making to prolog style code.

That's why i have all those prologish code on my box :-) Sendme a note
if you need pointers, comments on getting stuff to run under guile.
