Good day,

I have aspirations to run scheme on graalvm's truffle framework. And on superficial research, it seems implementing a Guile VM bytecode interpreter could be easiest path. I just want to inquire, if someone already had similar ideas and in secrecy is working or planning to on this? If you're familiar with truffle (I'm not), any insights on "guile on graal" would also be welcome.

I don't know anything about Truffle, but call/cc and delimited continuations strike me as feature that could be hard to
implement on such a thing. At least, it seems so from

On the other hand, upwards-only continuations, aka escape continuations, which are just a different way to do exceptions, should be doable, so you could probably ship a version of call/cc where the "cont" value in (call/cc (lambda (cont) ...)) can only be used inside of the lambda. Same for prompts.
