scsh - the "scheme shell" - has been added to the cygwin distribution.

scsh is the open-source Unix shell embedded within Scheme 48, running on 
all major Unix platforms. See

scsh is a variant of Scheme 48 (an R5RS compliant new-tech Scheme 
system). scsh is designed for writing real-life standalone Unix programs 
and shell scripts. scsh spans a wide range of application, from script 
applications usually handled with perl or sh, to more standard systems 
applications usually written in C.

* Yes, there's no readline interface. Complain elsewhere.
* The socket server bug recently reported on the scsh list is fixed,
   only closing a socket doesn't work yet.
* Both maintainers, here and upstream, are happy to get an official
   cygwin release, because 90% of the reported errors concern bogus
   cygwin packages around.
   Probably some of mine from ten years ago...
