Hello Guilers!

The Guile logo has this “GNU extension language” baseline.  As Guile 3
came out, this baseline felt odd to me, not quite corresponding to the
way I see Guile.

Clearly, Guile is still an extension language, with many great
applications (Gnucash, Lepton-EDA, OpenCog, GDB, etc.), and I’m sure
libguile is here to stay.  Yet, to me, “extension language” does not
accurately capture what Guile today allows for and what people have been
doing with it; since 2.0, it’s more than an extension language, even
more so with the performance afforded by Guile 3.

Thus, I’d propose changing the baseline.  Something that would describe
what Guile is to me is:

  GNU, fast, fun, functional

What’s about you?  What’s Guile to you?  :-)
