What do you mean by "now generate python AST from the compiler"?
Do you mean that now python-on-guile can compile the python module
named ast ('import ast')?

If I understand correctly, python-on-guile is a first step similar to
Hy [1] but using the Guile compiler tower instead of one of the Python
interpreters, right?

The current version in Guix is 0.1.0-3.00a51a2 using Guile 2.2.
Does it work on Guile 3?

And are the latest dependencies?

All the best,
