It would be unwise to assume that the Scheme implementations that work
by translating to C are the fastest Scheme implementations around. They
were done that way to make it easier to port them among different computers
that all have C compilers, not for speed of execution. I don't have any
speed figures myself, but C probably gets in the way of efficient execution,
so you should get the facts before you make a decision.
