Is there any real reason other than egos that prevents all Schemer's
rally behind Guile? Most Schemers are smart and capable of implementing
their own version of scheme over weekend and start the real project the
monday morning. That is real strength of Scheme/Lisp languages.
But this is acting as a deterrent to any viable single scheme
that can compete other langauges. I suggest one approach
for all Lisp/Scheme lovers.
a) Everybody can implement her own version for
testing various ideas. But at the same time all should
rally for political reasons behind ONE implementation.
b) Whenever somebody asks for suggestion, there should be ONE single
system that I can recomond with my eays closed. Everybody
should stick to this one when a novice asks a question
on the net as to which scheme to use for a project.
c) When some features tested on owns privite scheme and works well,
he should make sure that feature also works for the ONE TRUE
Scheme. That way, we do not need to recomond some other Scheme than
the ONE TRUE SCHEME for the sake of that perticular feature.
We can choose any existing Scheme for this purpose.
Is there any reason not to consider GUILE as the possible candidate
If we are not politialy smart, Scheme will die as a practical programming
langaues. It will stuill survive in select group of lingo people.
Just my thoughts.
