I would be using Guile if it were ready, for political reasons, and
because the guts of the garbage collecter look good. But the Guile
people are learning lots from STk. I expect porting STk code to Guile
will not be a big problem. It's free software, too, so Guile ideas
can be folded back into STk. Why is that a problem? I have three
Scheme implementations on my home 'puter.
