Some relatively minor points to add:

Though I like the idea of scsh, I still find it slightly large; I think
a set of suitable macros and library functions for Chibi might be a
better route.

By referring to Scheme compilers, I do not intend to exclude Scheme
interpreters from our candidates, but to show that the total complexity
of the proposed implementation can be comparable to (or even lower than)
that of the current implementation.

And by the way, since the chainloading procedure itself consumes very
little time after all, even if the Scheme implementation is relatively
slow, the overall performance of the system would be nearly unaffected.
