Date: Sun, 04 Jan 2004 20:28:02 +0100 From: felix <felix@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> I think the overhead is largely unimportant. Unless you are interacting with near-c-speed-sufficiently-smart-scheme-compilers (better think of crawling-lame-naive-bytecode-interpreter) the overhead of this will be completely lost in the noise the Scheme implementation produces. I meant the overhead of manipulating Scheme objects from C code, which is independent of the speed at which the Scheme code runs. It would be nice if the C code ran at near-C speed, no matter how lame or otherwise the speed of the Scheme code. -Richard Kelsey
