Hi David,

 FYI: I'm using snd with scheme and couldn't use the packaged version
of arch as it seems to have ruby built in. I'm now using a self
compiled snd version with scheme in /usr/local, but maybe it'd be good
to do it like debian and also package a snd-scheme in arch for people
like me. IIRC debian has snd-ruby, snd-forth and snd-scheme (meybe
even creating a symlink to snd to make them coexist nicely instead of
replacing the snd binary, but my memories are fading).
