No, I am making my own language right now using Bison/Flex, but its  
syntax is what is expected as standard. For example, (x, y) |-> x + y  
evaluates to (lambda (x y) (+ x y)). But is possible to have more  
complicated things, like functionals with variable arguments:
   (x, y, ...) (z, ...) |-> [x, y, z]
     --> (lambda (x . y) (lambda z (list x y z)))
Or calling functions:
   f(a, b)(c, d)
     --> ((f a b) c d)

I have just started, but it moves fast forward.

It actually produces Scheme code in terms of Guile objects. So it is  
possible to write it out and evaluate in another program than Guile.

Perhaps it with museums as with libraries.
