According to A.M. Kuchling <akuchlin / mems-exchange.org>:
:    Guile programmers?  If they're Guile programmers, they must like 
:    programming in Scheme.  Why would they work on translators for languages
:    they'll never use?

Perhaps a parallel example are the Java implementations of Python and
Tcl - these were written by Java programmers interested in having the
facilities of python / tcl in their java applications.

Perhaps Guile programmers never saw a need for the facilities of perl/tcl/
python.
