FluxOS toolkit would be a good idea IMHO, since there's a lot
of tedious coding to be done to reach that level, and it's not
an area that Lisp improves on greatly.

Fair enough, although Scheme does suffer from minimality, IMHO.
Have you seen the EuLisp draft spec? Now /that/ looks more like
it! I haven't the URL any more, sadly, but It's Out There.

Hmmm, I'd be able to help with concepts and troubleshooting, and I
may have some time to code. I have NT4.0, BTW.
