But one possible Scheme area is embedded systems (e.g. BIT, Scheme48 on mobile 
robots). Think of embedded systems where scheme-in-a-door-knob is outputting 
to LEDs in the door.  I don't want many strings build in a cost-sensitive 64K 
EPROM + small RAM.  I may really, really want to generate output a character 
at a time.
