I'm sorry, I realize my question wasn't clear.  (It was pretty late 
last night when I wrote).

I'm certainly able to get the server running, with a top-level 
environment for each client.  What I'd like to do is have each client's 
session execute an interactive program at connect time.

For instance, if I have a program called Server.scm, I can run it 
interactively on the console:

[localrich@dev-chaos server]$ kawa Server.scm
Server: What is your name? 
Server: What is your quest? 
to find the holy grail
Server: What is for favorite color? 
Server: Wrong Answer!

What I'd like to do is run the same program for each client that 
connects, i.e.

[localrich@dev-chaos server]$ kawa --server 5555 Server.scm &
[localrich@dev-chaos server]$ telnet localhost 5555
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
Server: What is your name?
Server: What is your quest?

I hope this explains my question better.
