I believe there is a Guile scheme port of scsh, and Guile supports
readline, as well as emacs integration I believe. Also there is a Guile
window manager and integration with the Gtk X11 toolkit.

As for Scheme vs Lisp, I hadn't heard that LispOS had settled on one or
the other. Perhaps in some peoples minds :-). Being a vapour-ware
project I could just as easily argue we had settled on C++ :-) :-)
