	eichin@thok.org dons his suit and tie to ask:

	Ok, now I have a theory for why scheme projects are doomed :-)

	[seriously.  Other than autocad (where only the most advanced users
	even know there's something lisp-like inside) or gensym (where all of
	the lisp is on the other side of a wall of consultants :-), oh, and
	Emacs itself, what scheme/lisp end-user successes have there been?
	And while that may seem like a "wrong question", 

Yes, it certainly does.


	the answer should provide some guidance towards better pattern
	matching on "what kinds of things lead to success"...

Don't you mean "which keywords" rather than "what kinds of things"? :-)
