I have managed to code a printer in scheme that is suspendable e.g. no
jumping back and forth between scheme and C unless you use custom old port
p printers or smob printers. This system also works nicely with a soft port
construction I have that is completely written in scheme. So when one using
the soft-suspendable-ports discussed in it all works as well for
format, display and write. As this is a pure scheme library solution there
is no C interface that takes advantage of this system with more
than that one trampolines into scheme and use the scheme write,display and
format. This is a proof of concept and not finished yet although more
advanced objects like smob and ports with custom printers works as it
should. Internals from the C implementation are used so older versions of
guile may be buggy. The simple complex objects like struct and classes is a
bit easier to maintain as their custom printers is scheme printers.

objects not handled:
   (array     )
   (flags      )
   (values   )
   (pointer   )
   (frame    )
   (cont      )
   (wvect    )

I do not expect any problems with those compared to what objects are
already implemented.

Speedwise nothing is optimized. After a working module is finished we can
work on speeding things up like a lookup-table for the tc7 dispatch and so


(use-modules (ice-9 soft-suspendable-ports))

and you are ready to go with the repl now directly using the scheme printer
instead of the C based printer. Likwise format in the shell will now use
the scheme based printer.

Happy hacking
