The Guile project began with the SCM sources, but has since diverged *greatly*.
SCM continues to be maintained as its own entity.

Elk is a completely separate lineage.

Depends on what you want. They each have a few things that the others don't,
but whether that matters to you... is up to you.

Overall, however, I prefer MzScheme <URL:
packages/mzscheme/index.html> over any of the above, for most stuff.

But as always, YMMV.
