Thus I'd appreciate more info about
  - why you go this way. One reason I can think of is because scheme might
    be more powerful than nix language. Are there more reasons?
  - in which way you're going to utilize the new "power" of scheme first
    applying to what problems?
  - how exactly you reuse existing "nix*" software. You should describe
  - what would be the advantages of your system - eg will you keep the
    lazy feature? If you build 150 packages its not a big problem.

    But if you think about all python, perl, scala, java, php, C, ocaml,
    perl, ... packages ... there are many.
