I picked Guile for my projects simply because it's a *lot* easier to
integrate with C code than anything else tried to work with. For one,
you can -really- easily define your own low-level types, and still not
worry about memory management issues (in fact, I found out that by
using Guile's GC, you can simplify the C code a lot - this isn't true
with either Perl or Python).

How to eff the ineffable?
