If you don't mind, I'd like to do that too -- independently.   But in
a screwy way.

I need to write a spec for the string API of Pika.  So far, the Pika
FFI is such that it could be implemented for Guile very easily.  And,
imo, it's also pretty good as an internal API for almost everything.
If used (gradually migrated to, in the case of Guile) as an internal
API -- I think it's pretty liberating (permitting lots of freedom for
different object representations, thread support, GC strategies,

Maybe in the longer term -- unifying over the Pika APIs would be a
general win.
