Your post had some great ideas.
I want to relate it back to the discussion about a book.
Using another languages libraries is like capturing your enemy's supply wagons.
JScheme is a scheme dialect, i use every day, with transparent access to Java.
So, it takes a page of code or so to interface to things like applets, servlets, database, and mail.
So, if you're interested in a book about the ideas behind light weight languages, why not base the implementations on Java so you have a way of exposing Java programmers to your ideas.
What's missing from EOPL2 and LiSP is a portable implementation a latent language designer can explore.
