Zile in its traditional shipped form is indeed meant to be tiny and
portable, but since it's been (ab)used for various experimental
purposes (for example, the Lua version, which is currently still
experimental), I'd be very happy to have a Guile integration branch
too. I've found Zile a good platform for experimentation precisely
because it's small and simple, but nonetheless a full-fledged editor.
