not sure how much of that fence still exists. With Scheme intro  
courses even gone from MIT there is not much momentum left. When  
playing with PLTscheme for a short while I found the performance and  
even to some degree the IDE quite unconvincing compared to CCL. The  
OpenGL examples in PLTscheme are downright embarrassing.

One can speculate why Scheme is is loosing ground. I am guessing it  
has more to do with actual functionality, e.g., continuations really  
are not a substitute for OOP, than with syntax.

cheers,  Alex
