I like Scheme better than Pliant's default syntax.  GUSH will remain
written in Guile, but I simply refuse to use SCM-based Guile: I want
to use a reflexive, Pliant-based Guile.

My first real Pliant application will be to embed it into GRUB, the
GRand Unified Bootloader.  Then, I intend to port more and more Gush
features to GRUB by building up layers of Guile on top of Pliant.

Pliant is my answer to libffi, G-Wrap, and RScheme.  I'm happy to find
a GPLed solution that incorporates all these things, making room for a
stable base for Guile, and eliminating the need for me to write any of
my future applications in C: I can use ``Pliant Guile''.
