I did not mean to insinuate that. It's just that I've heard .NET buzzworded 
about in the Perl and Python communities (especially, but not limited to, Win32 
developers) way too much recently (it tends to get mentioned in the same breath 
as XML a lot). If Guile actually learns to parse every language under the sun 
someday, support from The Rest of the World may still be an issue. I'm no 
expert on this, of course...
