Woohoo!  As discussed privately, thumbs up to you Andy for the
incredible work on the compiler and JIT: you had expressed your plan a
few years ago, at a time where there was still a loooong way to go, and
it’s impressive to see that it has worked according to the plan.

Thanks also to everyone who contributed to all the other features that
made it into 3.0: they’re also part of what makes Guile 3 so great!

I’m really happy we’ll be able to take advantage of all this in Guix!

Happy Guile 3 hacking!  :-D
