I would agree, unless you can claim that it's easier to write a
Perl to guile translator and embed guile in your application than
to just embed the Perl interpreter into your application.

I haven't seen much documentation suggesting why guile can
support other languages better. Has someone written such a
document? It would go a long way to getting the author of a new
language to implement his language's interpreter or compiler
ontop of guile.
