I can imagine that.

Also, I must admit I learned as much Scheme as I needed to implement
parts of Lily; I still have only a dim understanding of more esoteric
Scheme topics like call/cc and hygienic macros.

If you have properly learned Scheme, you are already in a position to
rewrite parts of Lily, as my idiom is most likely rather
strange. Luckily, Nicolas has been helping us out by sanitizing parts
of the code.
