Bug#631139: ITP: mosh -- fast R6RS Scheme interpreter

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: David Banks <amoebae@gmail.com>

* Package name    : mosh
  Version         : 0.2.7
  Upstream Author : Taro Minowa <higepon@users.sourceforge.jp>
* URL             : http://mosh.monaos.org/
* License         : BSD-2-clause
  Programming Lang: C++, Scheme
  Description     : fast R6RS Scheme interpreter

Daniel Moerner attempted to package Mosh before under the ITP #537776, which is
now archived.  This attempt stalled, but I have picked up the project on
collab-maint (with Daniel's consent).  Currently Debian has two R6RS
implementations: Guile and Racket.  Mosh provides two R6RS environments based on
the same VM, one using the popular psyntax expander (that is also used by Guile)
and one using an expander by Andre van Tonder.  The primary difference from
Guile and Racket is that Mosh has a smaller and more R6RS-focused library
system, as it was designed for R6RS.
