Congratulations to all Guile participants. Better late than never! Guile is clearly superior, in its underlying design, to all other scripting/extension languages in use.
I commend the vision of the original Guile developer, Tom Lord, in recognizing Lisp's true nature as an excellent scripting-language design. Perhaps all Guile needs now is pool-based garbage collection, so it can ignore memory malloc'd by the C and C++ libraries it calls. (Or is that what Boehm-Demers-Weiser does?)
