Cool! Count me as Squemish!

Nice. It would be really groovy if something like this evolved in to a
Kawa like framework for implementing multiple langauges.

Hmm. Right now I'm having trouble using it in a 3.3a-4689+ image. I used
the Repository code snippet, but when I try Scheme class>>openInterpreter,
I get a walkback on SchemeEnvironment new (in Scheme>>initialize). It
seems like the code doesn't see the SchemeEnvironment class, but think it
refers to nil. If I "do it" that specific line (i.e., SchemeEnviroment
new) it gives me a *new* walkback on SchemeNil new. Which, when doneited,
I think I must be having some module trouble.
