I asked the same thing a while back, and this is the answer I got.
I've used SchemeTex quite a bit and I'm quite satisfied with it. If
you are interested, I've hacked it a bit to be used with GNU Texinfo,
and also cooked up some Emacs lisp support for dealing with SchemeTex
files. It is not at all ready to be released, but if you want to take
look at it, I'll be happy to share.
