Scheme *should* be used for everything because at least one good macro
system has been designed for it. Lisp macros can do arbitrary
computation at compile-time, and the Scheme macro system required by
R6RS provides all the power of Lisp macros *and* supports a
pattern-matching macro specification syntax for simple syntactic sugar.
