Re: X bindings in Scheme?

Xlib is pretty easy to call from your favourite Scheme. I'm desultorily
working on a simple Xlib interface from Chez Scheme; and MIT CScheme has
(almost?) full Xlib support as well, as I recollect. Any Scheme which
allows you to call C procedures will support Xlib ok. 

Actually, what I'd like is Xt (or, even better, Motif) from Scheme. It
would be even better to be able to write widgets in Scheme!  The problem
is that the architecture of Xt involves a lot of callbacks, and,
generally (unless you're using the DECWRL compiler) you can't call
Scheme from C.

Has anybody had any thoughts on this?
