Personally I would think that having Guile guess by extension would be the, in most cases, most reliable. Otherwise there could be problems loading several files in different languages etc.

I would think that one of the best solution would be to have a switch to execute arbitrary commands such as ,L so you would call guile with `guile --switch ",L elisp"`. The separate executables could then be done as aliases if one wanted.

Seems smarter to just have different executables:

    guile (and guile-scheme for completeness via hard/soft link)

That seems like it'd lead to far less confusion overall.
