Yeah, ok well they should be considered. But jscheme is an interpreter within an interpreter == unnecessarily slow. None of them technically are Scheme (no call/cc, blurry picture on full tail calls etc).

I'm curious what you actually want to have full call/cc for - except as a "check-off (completeness) item.

Kawa's type system makes it rather inconvenient to use Java libraries like Swing (strings in kawa are not strings in java etc).

Make up your mind : Do you want complete Scheme? If so you can't have strings in Kawa be strings in Java,
because the latter as immutable.

However, Kawa does automatically and conveniently convert from Scheme strings to Java strings.
That's the best you can get if you want Scheme strings to be modifiable.

Neither have built in a nice CLOS-ish object system which makes life worth living.

Kawa has a nice builtin CLOS-ish object system - but but it does need work! The design is
quite nice, though.
