Yeah, I think that’s typically something that people choosing to use
Guile-PHP would enjoy.

First it needs to be fixed within the next few weeks because it fails to
compile even simple expressions (see ‘ecmascript.test’).  But maybe
that’s on Andy’s to-do list?  :-)

Then my guess is that it mostly needs applications and use cases, which
in turn may lead to specific requirements such as additional libraries.
