For now I would be in favor of setting up a separate project on
Savannah, rather than having a branch in the Guile repo.  That should be
technically doable as we’ll make sure to keep the compiler API
compatible during the 2.x release series.

To be honest, I personally don’t value the PHP language much and would
rather have GNU promote Scheme than PHP, though I can understand that
some people would find it useful to have interoperability between Guile
Scheme and PHP code.  Additionally, each language front-end adds a
maintenance burden and consumes hacker energy (the ECMAScript front-end
needs love, BTW! ;-)).

Anyhow, depending on how things evolve in the future, we can still
decide to merge it (which would itself be facilitated if all
contributors have assigned copyright to the FSF.)

What do you think?
