And tells you so, in no uncertain terms.  ;)

Sorry… That was not meant to be a comment on your work — just pointing out that 
Scheme is daunting enough to start learning without hearing that the main thing 
you’re planning to wrestle with (at least in the short term) is made up of 
"icky things".

Perhaps once I’m more comfortable with Scheme I can start to wrestle with them, 
and you can "tag in" when I’m pinned.

Thanks so much for all your help!
