single-threaded. When you have a large bunch of elisp running in one
buffer, all of EMACS is hung. When you have something asking for
input, very often you want to go poking through other buffers and
lists and things to get the input you're looking for, but you can't
because it's blocking on your input.
Being able to run normal vim commands while a large bunch of
scheme is running would make having an embedded scripting language
