Alterator is layered:

backends
implement system interaction,
frontends
implement UI and configuration logic,

Frontends are implemented in Scheme. Backend/frontend interaction is performed through sockets by the specific Lisp-inspired protocol.

Backends may be written in any language, and there are existing libraries for POSIX shell and Perl for dealing with frontend communication protocol.
