Um, OK. I think that's what many people are doing.

The motivation is not for his benefit alone. Actually, the
benficiaries would be the many people who decide to start writing
applications in scheme because there is a nice implementation for
doing so, and would be saved the pain of perl or tcl.

If someone thinks a project has merit, it is natural, even
commendable, for that person to try to get other people to work
towards the same goal. I call this leadership.
