I'd like to know if guile is byte-code compiled, or if not, why not. My
impression is that it isn't, but I know that this isn't fundamental to lisp
systems (e.g. emacs lisp can be byte-compiled). I suspect that it will be
difficult to match the speed of other scripting languages without some form
of byte-compiling. Anyone care to enlighten me?
