Not quite. Guile does create bytecode, and guild can create it, but this
also happens during normal execution.

This sounds pretty interesting. Before you run this, though, please get
the help of experienced Guile programmers. I have an example of a
string-handling procedure which got more than 160x faster thanks to help
from others here. No typo there: It really got more than
hundred-and-sixty-times faster.
