True; please remind me of this issue later, because there will be
no changes in TeXmacs until the nogencc version gets stable.

At the moment yes. An erroneous command in a C++ program may
give you a segmentation fault or a compilation error...

If you want to help with improving the scheme interface,
this would be great. We will get there in about two months.
I first want to deal with the menus and keyboard issues.
After that, the scheme interface will be redesigned.
It would be great to have contributors to the documentation and
people who will use this opportunity to extend TeXmacs.
The nice thing is that it will allow you to write interesting
extensions for TeXmacs without needing to know the whole C++ program.
Typically, it should allow you to implement some of your suggestions

Ah, I see; this is the font for the Copyright sign.
But this should not withhold you from reading the documentation, right?
