I think there's room for lots of organizations :) Commercially I see the
value as being in niches that can apply technology from the Guile
universe to problems people have.  We can (and should!) spread the
gospel of Scheme but that only gets you so far; my feeling is that
successful guile-hacking orgs will have a touch with some market need
beyond consultancy on Guile itself.  In that regard too that niche
relationship can exist in many different Guile-hacking orgs; a central
"GuileCo" doesn't seem likely to me.  Dunno tho :)

I personally don't see the "finish line" of a full-time Guile gig in
sight (yet?), so I am not going to put an extraordinary sprint of effort
into that side of things right now; Guile is still a side gig for me at
this point.  It's one which I'd be happy to expand of course but not
something on which to gamble the rent :)

Happy hacking,
