Count me in.

I have written my fair amount of Scheme scripts on the Ben Nanonote: the
screen is a tad small and a full–size keyboard is of course much more
confortable for programming, but I’d say it’s a pretty acceptable
experience overall.

Plus, with 32MB of RAM you really get to appreciate the difference between
a properly tail recursive function and one that isn’t ;)
