Since we use Guile as an extension language,
we tend to switch to C++ whenever performance is an issue.
In the past, I rewrote some document search routines in C++ for this reason.
The only serious problem that I had with Guile was the time to boot all files.
This prompted me to write all the lazy initialization stuff...
and that is precisely what is getting into our way if we now
want to move to Guile 2/3...
