As it stands, the interpreters and compilers are available at no cost
with source. As far as I can tell, the only thing bringing in GUILE
would do is force the other two systems under GPL. While I certainly
approve of the Free Software movement, I am not an activist. Even
Eric Raymond grants that other license models should be recognized.
I believe that STk and Bigloo are licensed in a way that permits both
open and closed software. This is a good thing.
