A serious advantage of Scheme and other Lisps is that they are homoiconic - that is, when you type in code, you can see exactly what
underlying data structures it's going to be represented as, making macros and code-generating-code remarkably powerful.
But a serious problem with Scheme and other Lisps is that it's hideously hard to read (and I've used Lisps for more than 20 years).
I've been trying to fix that; see http://www.dwheeler.com/readable and its associated mailing list.
