I came to the same conclusion. A couple of people also mailed similar
solutions. What I'm planning on now is to create my own with texinfo.
This way, there'll be a printed document, executable code, and an
"info" version of the document. It should facilitate a nice Scheme

If anyone wants the finished product, send mail and I'll hold on to
your address. I'm not even going to guess at when I'll complete it.

Thanks very much to everyone who responded. I appreciate it.
