Thanks, yes I'm very happy too!  We'll first have to create a rough
merger, then make it really work and hopefully also chat about a path
forward.  I think Gash and Geesh had slightly different priorities in
their goals but I am sure that will work out perfectly.

Indeed, I have been experimenting somewhat with Gash on the
wip-bootstrap branch in an attempt to remove coreutils&co and am now
blocked for missing functionality.

Once we have this merger in place I suspect we may see a lot of progress
on the Scheme-only bootstrap front :-)
