Hi!  So, I'm the one who did the most recent rebase of wip-elisp.

Last I heard, Wingo was interested in merging, but looked over the
branch and saw that it wasn't a trivial merge... the branch added some
non-trivial changes to the compiler, and I think Wingo wanted to review
those before merging.  (I'm not really qualified to help, there.)

I leave this one to someone else to reply to, but you'd definitely need
to do copyright assignment for Guile.  I think other "establishing
yourself in the community" things apply, informally(??)
