Sounds exciting! I would like to help with testing.

The transformation toward a Guile daemon is a point of consistency and
pride for the project and therefore unlikely to be second-guessed or
reverted. My recommendation is to replace the daemon gradually—working
from (apply system* (command-line) downward—and mainline your
incremental changes as quickly as possible.

Thanks for doing this!

Kind regards,
