I bet it's either a temperamental mismatch or a trust issue. The current project is not objectively too chaotic at all. It may be too chaotic if you have a temperament that thrives on plans and order. I have the opposite temperament, and plans get in my way. I follow some projects that are chaotic from my standpoint and it doesn't bother me. I can always ask if I don't understand something. It's just not a problem to me; I see it as productive. Trust issues can happen if there if disagreement on values (e.g. representing Scheme's interests by adopting a maximally Scheme-based solution as Amirouche mentioned). We don't disagree about the end goal here; we just disagree about the timetable. I think it's more important to get a good solution running fast and easy, even if it's not Scheme-based; we can convert it to use more Scheme gradually. Amirouche thought (correct me if I'm wrong) that it's better to go all-Scheme right away, even if the solution is not as technically mature or easy as a non-Scheme approach. Let's just make a compromise then. My suggested compromise is in the "Proposal for a simple plan" thread; please comment.
