Ludovic Court?s:
   Therefore, being able to parse and access C code from Scheme/Guile itself,
   and handling such a code like any other Scheme object would clearly
   benefit the community opening many new possibilities.

   For example, creating Guile bindings through a foreign function generator
   using the parser on headers for popular C libraries and applications
   would be plain easy.

Again, I'm not convinced that such a tool would suffice to make FFI
generation "plain easy".

One project who actually makes this conversion "plain easy", is jsext:
jsext is a library for javascript which automatically creates wrappers
on the fly out of c header files. I know it works, because I once got
a personal demonstration from the author of it. :-) Might be worth looking
at as well.
