Hi Neil :)

Though I was not the person to whom the question was addressed, a
comment :)

I keep thinking that it should be possible to write some kind of C shim
so that Guile could implement the Emacs C "API". That way we keep the
existing C code working, we keep the fine-tuned implementations and
semantics, and we can move on from "re-implementing" to "implementing"
-- e.g. adding to Emacs instead of just reproducing it. 

Happy hacking,
