I don't know much about Scheme (yet), but I don't see why not. After 
all, Lisp seems to have the mentality that if you can't write an 
interface to it in Lisp, you need to fix it so that it provides a 
general enough interface that you can. If there were a way to interact 
with the Qt object model with a pure C interface, I am sure Scheme and a 
whole lot of other languages could make ready use of it.

One question I am pondering is whether to try and shoehorn the Qt 
objects into the CLOS model, or whether to let it be its own beast with 
its own rules and behavior. The more I learn of CLOS and its flexibility 
and power, the more I am inclined to keep the two separate.
