Cool stuff. I guess you are right. :-)

Now I just have to figure out why I am not using Lisp or whether I
should switch languages.

I've used Scheme in my classes before but it seemed like such a toy
language. It was fairly easy to code in and I remember passing around
predicates as function parameters.

What is the equivalent of exceptions (i.e. throw, catch) in Lisp or
Scheme? What is the best 'GUI/windowing' abstract data type library for
Lisp or Scheme?

Take care,
