Aren't we supposed to use GNU guile for all FSF-supported script-based
tools? In fact, isn't Automake itself intended to be eventually
re-written in guile?

If you don't like the current languages that guile supports, you can
always write a Python implementation that runs under guile (as they
did for Tcl) and implement using Python syntax.

Ducking and running ...
