> What about RScheme? (www.rscheme.org). I haven't investegated that
Hi, yes I did take a brief look at rscheme but its oop documentation
was so sparse i couldnt tell if the object system was reasonable or
not. i didn't consider its restriction of method dispatching on only
one argument "reasonable" but in fairness it did seem to have some
add-on that allowed multi dispatch. At any rate I decided to make
gauche and stklos the first effort because they are really pretty
close to guile and so i think i understand what to do.
CM doesnt really need all that much from an object system -- and can be
made even less needy -- but at some point i simply throw up my hands.

cm's scheduler is consless, so if you preallocate things, stick to
fixnums and/or use resources you can keep user garbage down.
