Anyone care to port ILU to Scheme?

 Anyone care to port ILU to Scheme?

I'm wondering if anyone would care to try doing an ILU port for
Scheme?  I'm happy with Laumann's ELK, but any decent scheme with some
sort of multiple inheritance object system, and way of
calling/being-called-from C code, should work fine.  A port should be
fairly easy; we could provide our python port as a guide.

ILU is an object-oriented module system, intended to ease the pain of
writing a program, different parts of which are written in different
languages.  As a side effect of this, it provides an object RPC system
between program modules which are running in different address spaces,
so it also becomes a tool for doing distributed programs.  Currently
supported languages include Common Lisp, ANSI C, C++, and Modula-3.
Python and Tcl are in the works.
