| IIRC, he wrote that in 1984.

  at the time, incidentally, Common Lisp was his favorite Lisp.  GNU CL
  (based on Kyoto Common Lisp, which I played with back in 1987) has turned
  out to be a serious flop, so maybe he thinks Scheme will fare better in
  the new language GUILE.  I don't think it will.  it has even less overall
  design than usual for overgrown Scheme implementations, and people add
  stuff to in the Unix and C spirit (each man his own conventions).
