could someone adopt the gambc (scheme) package from potato and put it into woody/unstable
I'm not a developer but some users of mine are interested in
the package. The developer from potato indicated below that
he no longer has an interest in it.

This is release 3.0 of the Gambit-C Scheme programming system. Gambit-C
includes a Scheme interpreter and a compiler which can be used to build
standalone executables. Because the compiler generates portable C code, it
is fairly easy to port to any machine with a decent C compiler.
The Gambit-C system conforms to the R4RS and IEEE Scheme standards. The
full numeric tower is implemented, including: infinite precision integers
(bignums), rationals, inexact reals (floating point numbers), and complex
numbers. Gambit-C supports a number of extensions to the standards
