Count me in the 1%, then. I've tried several times to switch to
Emacs, but my fingers just don't work that way [too used to "moded"
editors such as TECO, Bravo, & Vi, perhaps, and "Vi mode" in Emacs
is a major mode incompatible with "Lisp mode"], so I'm afraid that
Vi [rather, nvi-1.79] is still my editor of choice.

Nvi-1.79 has supported multiple embedded "interpreters" since
at least 1996, and comes with example code for both Perl and
Tcl [including using Tk as a GUI!]. I was about to try to embed
MzScheme, but right around them I switched from Scheme to CL...  ;-}

You also might want to check out MzVim:
