I think that the SLIB makes Scheme really useful, cause the SLIB
provides a lot of nice features.

Well, I don't use Motif, cause I am using Linux on a machine with a
14" monitor. And because of the monitor I am using X-Windows not so
often. I only use it for tasks, where I need it. Something like doing

I think that this would be quite nice.

Well, I used the gabriel-benchmarks, and then I found clisp to be
faster as STk.
