Hmm, Marius Vollmer recently released a new and polished-up version
of guile-gtk (for gtk1.2). It actually compiled out of the box 
(unlike earlier versions) and works really nice here.

I'm not shure about the user interface -- i personally am very happy with
the text interface (esp. whe integrated into Xemacs). As a scheme user rather
than a LISPer (or better, CLTLer) i'd favour scheme but i would have to think
hard to find a good reason for scheme in favour of LISP.
