If you are in to running lisp interactively, I suggest you look also
on the ILISP package. ILISP is a generic interface to lisp systems and
comes with setups for a long list of existing systems.

While I haven't used it much myself yet, I really like the
concept. One of the nice things are that you get standard keybindings
for a bunch of things, regardless of which system you are actually
running on.

Below is my current (and very simple) attempt for a scm interface:

(defdialect scm "Scm Scheme"
  (setq ilisp-program "scm -i")
  (setq comint-prompt-regexp "^> ")

which will enable you to start a scm-interaction buffer by saying

        M-x scm

Of course, all the fancy bells and whistles aren't enabled by the
simple defintion above, but I am looking forward to getting some time
to work on it.
