I think that there is upstream interest in Guile to improve the elisp
implementation, but I’m not sure about Emacs. They added improvements to
elisp that also provide better performance and they keep improving their
elisp implementation.

That said: Tools like fibers would be great to have in Emacs.

The workload to finish this is considerable, though: IIRC You’ll need to
solve some deeper problems that prevent Guile Emacs from using
byte-compiled files (that’s why it currently has a very high startup

That said, there is a guile-emacs package in guix, and Guile 3.0.7 is
much faster than Guile 2.

(please someone correct me if I’m wrong!)
