   And I'm a person trying to write a replacement for /sbin/init for the
   (Hurd-based) GNU-system and I am implementing it entirely in Guile,
   because I want to push Guile as the system scripting language of the
   GNU OS.

   But there are still lots of applications where it makes sense to have an
   extension language.

another response is to try to lessen maintenance through interface
manipulation tools (glue code wrapper generators), which are mostly
done, these days, wrt raw functionality but need refinement.

even more guileful would be to write tools to ferret out redundant
implementations of guile-provided facilities (e.g., "linked lists in C")
and auto-refactor them to use libguile.  (this will probably happen when
auto-debug is written. ;-)

ok less talk more walk...
