I have a mindstorms set here, I once created my own scheme interpreter
to fiddle with it. It was very very fun! although Scheme was not R5RS
compliant and not all RCX features were implemented it showed that the
task is easy.
I never tried serial communication with Rev, but if there's a way to do
simple serial communication then you can control your RCX.
