Hi François,
 great to see some work on this side. I started to port to Guile 2.0 some time 
ago, first by changing the C++ side to make it compile with Guile-2. This was 
done. I stopped when I realized that there should have been deep changes in the 
Scheme side to accomodate the Compile/Run 2 phases of interpretation of Guile-2 
and all the module system which is incompatible with this approach. I wanted to 
modify the TeXmacs module system to be compatible with the 2 phases but my 
proficiency in scheme is not enough. In many points there are assumptions about 
code being run while interpreting the sources and this would have to be 
modified in Guile-2 since this code is not run but kept there until execution 
which then imply that further compilation will happen in the wrong environment. 

I'm interested in following the developements and also there were another 
person (Mike Gran) how was similarly interested. 

Let us move the discussion to texmacs-dev.
