Guile is for situations, when script is mainly calls other programs, but
still needs moderately complex logic of text manipulation, compraison
and mapping. Recently I wrote script, that had to emulate map(data
structure). Well, I would prefer that is was part of Bash.

Second (possible) reason is that it allows Bash to be extended by every
user in Emacs way. After all, Guile was created for this to be possible.

I already wrote Guile builtin independently 
(git://github.com/kaction/guile-bash),
but it has imperfect design. Also, some things needs to done from inside.

What about automake, I tried to first write guile patch, but build
system is not so simple to extend, so I think using Automake will
simplify things for me, us and future contributors.
