* Guile (which is a scheme) has a radically different syntax with elisp (which 
means that to implement elisp in guile, one has to hack the byte code 
interpreter AFAIK). Elisp can be implemented inside CL with full compatibility, 
which mitigates lots of problems between interfacing between CL code and elisp 
code.

This is not a problem with Guile, because Guile includes a compiler
and interpreter for Emacs Lisp.

Hi Eli, now I am the curious.

If that's already done (which sems to be the harder part), where is the
real problem to migrate to guile? I know there should be many, but what
are the known ones??
