OK, I put you on the list :^)

In fact, we already *have* literate programming implemented
to some extent: take a look at how we generate documentation
and web-sites. In fact, literate programming is a quite trivial
task from the TeXmacs point of view, since all interesting
constructs can easily be encapsulated into new tags and
all interesting actions (web/noweb, and *many* others)
can easily be implemented in Scheme (or other) plug-ins.
