Because it's quite relevant. When guile was starting it promised choice of languages to use in extending their program. Translators were supposed to make it possible to write in any language of your choice. Kind of like CLR but on top of scheme.
This was ambitious goal and it's implementation could have made guile much better then yet-another-language-run-of-the-mill-extension-language.
Yet last time I've checked guile was yet-another-version-of-scheme (as obscure and unknown by general public as any other scheme dialect) which made it kind of useless as an extension language.
