Re: Ousterhout's quote in guile-ref.texi
I think it's pretty obvious from the quote itself that Osterhout is
being sarcastic about the rabid paranoia of Scheme fandom that the Tcl
Wars invoked. Although I'm not shy about preferring Scheme to Tcl,
most of the language debate I've seen seems pretty uninsightful.
But if folks think that including Osterhout's quote in that way seems
mean-spirited, I'll remove it. I'm not trying to be nasty. But it's
a ridiculous situation, and it needs to be punctured somehow.
