Really?  My (extremely unscientific) experiments were showing
something like <10ms for C->Guile calls that didn't involve GC, and
~100ms for ones that did.

It might be worthwhile to put out a call to the GNU webmasters.  Or
just post an ad on Savannah -- I actually got several responses to
something I posted looking for testers for SDOM, which has about zero
name recognition.  I bet lots of people would be interested in getting
a chance to redesign Guile's page.

Parrot had a new release two days ago.  Whether they're still on
peoples' minds (and whether they're still gonna host Perl6), I dunno.
