i used to write c programs with ose (real time kernel). my prototypes i 
did in scheme on a unix machine. i had written an ose emulating library.
the normal code line explosion when going to c was 10 times. and then i 
had to add more things needed for the target platform.

while not a best fit to your problem i still belive there are enough 
similarities between erlang and scheme to warrant this email.
