Because RMS said so?  Using google searches to follow broken links from
the Guile docs I recently read the "TCL wars" archives.  RMS uses the
language-angnosticism of his proposed GNU scripting language as a major
retorical point justifying a new language.  If you read his statements
literally it sounds as though Guile should be handling TCL, C and Python
by now (Perl was also mentioned, but that's pure fantasy)...  Has this
goal been discarded?  Postponed?
