Major parts of this program are written by people other than myself. There is no reason to re-implement stuff that is already freely available.

For copyright information and installation instructions, see the various packages. The sources are hacked by Yours Truly to give the programs a uniform look. If you don't approve of that and/or already have the programs installed, there is no need to install my versions.

These are not the original versions. If my modifications break anything, complain to me about it, not the original authors. If the original versions work and mine don't, then don't use mine.

The embedded Scheme interpreter is an extremely small interpreter called Siod, which can be used stand-alone or easily integrated into a program as an extension language.
