I don't agree with that.  I have used guile-ncurses for my own purposes
quite successfully.  To be honest, I would never write a non-trivial
program using guile-gnome, which seems to be the only offering if you
want a GUI using guile-2.0: it has too many oddities (in particular, it
seems trivially easy to jam up the glib main loop and is sluggishly
maintained). At least guile-ncurses works as well as ncurses does, and
without any particular oddities.  OK, it provides a terminal/console
interface, but once you get over that it is fine.
